An eight-year-old girl ends up in the hospital after a boating crash.

Police tell News Ten that her father could face criminal charges for causing it.

It happened Sunday evening in Michigan Center Lake when two speed boats collided.
The girl was thrown into the water unconscious.

Her 12-year-old brother rescued her and began CPR until a medical helicopter flew her to Ann Arbor for treatment.

Police say the girl's father was driving the at-fault boat and tested above the legal limit for alcohol.
