MIAMI — Officials say a young woman was killed in a Florida Everglades airboat crash a day after graduating from the University of Miami.

Local news outlets report that 22-year-old Elizabeth Goldenberg had been with her parents, sister and one other person when all five were ejected late Saturday morning.

A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman says Goldenberg died from her injuries at a Miami-area hospital. Goldenberg’s sister sustained minor injuries. Her parents reported no injuries.

Wildlife officials wouldn’t immediately say who was piloting the airboat or if criminal charges would be filed. They say the crash is under investigation.

Goldenberg graduated with a musical theater degree on Friday.
