    The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department is investigating a fatal boating accident in Morgan Hill.

    A group of people on a ski boat at the Anderson Reservoir called 911 late Thursday reporting a man on the boat was in the water and was struck by the boat's propeller, officials said.

    "There were several people in a boat -- one of the people either fell off or jumped off the boat and was struck by the propeller," Santa Clara County Sheriff's Sgt. James Jensen said. "People were able to get him out of the water and Cal Fire responded."

    Emergency responders pronounced the man dead at the scene.

    No other information was immediately available.
