Stefanie Schaffer, 22, is in a medically induced coma, and is thought to be unaware both her legs have been amputated, her uncle told United States media.
"I wouldn't leave Stefanie's side", Sheila Jones said, "because all I could think about if that was my child I would want someone there". Schaffer, a former dancer, was traveling with her mother, step-father and sister when the incident occurred.
Her sister, Brooke, mother, Stacey, and stepfather, Paul Bender, were aboard the boat with her and were injured.
The name of the woman who died has not been released. She's going into her senior year at Castleton University, planned to do an internship and graduate in December.
