MEREDITH, N.H. — A pontoon boat that was trying to dock in Lake Winnipesaukee struck a woman who was on a paddleboard, the New Hampshire State Police’s Marine Patrol said.

People aboard the pontoon boat helped the paddleboarder out of the water and to the shoreline on Monday afternoon. The woman, who was from Chappaqua, New York, was taken to a hospital for evaluation, the patrol said.

The incident, which happened off of Church Landing on the lake in Meredith, is under investigation.
