Officials say a man is dead and his 9-year-old son seriously injured following a snowmobile accident just outside Manchester.

41-year-old Keith Ryan Jr. of Manchester died after Saturday's crash in a park in Auburn, near Lake Massabesic.

Ryan's son, Aden, son suffered chest and leg injuries. He was released from the hospital Monday evening.
Both Ryan and his son Aden were riding one snowmobile when it hit a bump and rapidly accelerated, hitting a rock and landing in a small brook.

Chris Ryan, the victim's brother, said his brother likely saved his son's life, by tossing him away from the snowmobile moments before the vehicle crashed.

Chris said the family was on vacation from Maine.

Conservation officers say both victims were wearing helmets.
