Manitowoc native killed in Seattle boating accident

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A former Manitowoc resident was killed in a boating crash in Seattle.

Washington state authorities said 33-year-old Melissa Protz was one of seven people aboard a sailboat late Wednesday night, when it was broadsided by a power boat.

It occurred on Lake Washington in Seattle, about a half-mile from the shore.

Protz graduated from Manitowoc Roncalli High School, and was a 6th and 7th grade biology teacher at a Seattle Catholic school.

Two others on the sailboat suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A 46-year-old man who operated the power boat was booked into jail on a possible charge of vehicular homicide by a watercraft. A bail hearing was expected Friday afternoon.
