These are the first pictures released of 14 year old Charlie Hutton, who died in a boating accident off the Isle of Wight on Friday.

The teenager is thought to have fallen into the water from a rigid hull inflatable near The Needles, and was apparently hit by its propeller.

Another boy was also hurt and taken to St. Mary’s Hospital on the island to receive treatment for an injury, which was serious but not life threatening.
