A Grant County man died at Williamstown Lake around 3 p.m. on July 3.

Grant Griffith, 28, of Dry Ridge, was killed after being struck by a boat.

Police said he was water-skiing with friends, fell off the skis and was waiting for the boat to pick him back up when another boat hit him.

Police said his friends pulled him from the water and attempted CPR but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Griffith was a graduate of Grant County High School. Visitation will be from 5 to 9 p.m. on July 7 at Elliston-Stanley Funeral Home in Williamstown. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on July 8 at Mount Zion Baptist Church.

Alcohol is not a factor, police said. The Williamstown Police Department is continuing the investigation.
