The Coast Guard says a 7-year-old girl has died after a large wave stirred up by Hurricane Bill swept her and two others off a rocky ledge at Acadia National Park in Maine.
Steve McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department says the girl's name isn't being released but that she was from New York state. The girl was one of three people plucked from the water by rescuers. The other two were a man and a 12-year-old girl who were hospitalized.
The Coast Guard says the girl was unresponsive when she was rescued.
The National Hurricane Center says the center of the hurricane was about 230 miles west of Newfoundland on Sunday night.
