Accidents Happen in Owen Sound!
On September 9, 2009, in Ontario, Canada a 6-year old child was injured in a boating mishap when the young girl was water skiing with her grandfather, who was operating the boat. The boat was powered by a 9.9 horsepower Mercury outboard. The child fell while water skiing, and as her grandfather attempted to pull her back on board the boat, the boat’s propeller became lodged in her leg. Firefighters arrived and removed the prop from the motor and left it intact in her leg to minimize bleeding while she was airlifted to an Ontario hospital to receive medical care.
According to the Canadian newspaper, “The Sun Times”, on August 25, 2009, a 50 year-old man was swimming in an Ontario lake. A boat that was pulling 2 children on an inflatable raft floated by the man and struck him. He suffered injuries to both of his legs, which was partially due to contact with the boat’s propeller. He was subsequently transported to Owen Sound Hospital. These are just 2 accidents included is a rash of propeller accidents they have occurred over the last few years in and around Owen Sound, Ontario.
