Will Green, a 23-year-old Floridian wakeboarder, has passed away in a water sports accident in Carters Lake, Georgia, USA.
The winner of the 2015 USA Wakeboard Collegiate Nationals was riding doubles with another rider, but an attempt to jump over Green ended up in tragedy, as the other rider's board hit him violently in the head.
The wake champion was a devoted member of the Cohutta Springs Youth Camp where he was serving as a wakeboard instructor when the accident took place.
