Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said the woman was taken to the hospital Monday afternoon.

She was identified as 31-year-old Angie Jenkins of Woodstock.

Mark Padgett of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said Jenkins was riding on a tube pulled by a boat when the tube hit a another boat's wake.

Liz Starkey, a DNR spokeswoman, said Jenkins was being pulled at about 25 to 30 mph at the time.

There was no word on Jenkins' condition Tuesday morning.
