A young boy needed multiple staples to close a wound to his head after he slammed into a boat while tubing in the Hudson Valley.

On Wednesday around 12:30 p.m., the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call of a boat accident on Sackett Lake in the Town of Thompson.

At the scene, deputies learned that a boat pulling a 13-year-old boy on a tube swerved to avoid colliding with another boat. However, the boat towing the boy made its turn too late and the boy on the tube slammed into the side of the other boat, police say.

The unnamed 13-year-old was transported to Orange Regional Medical Center where he received 4 staples to close a laceration on his head, according to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.

No charges were filed and the boy is expected to recover fully, police say. Deputies were assisted at the scene by Mobile Medic and Monticello Fire Department.
