Jetskier gets foot severed in Idaho!!
I don't usually post things like this but it's one of those stories that should remind us to always watch out for the boats and other jetskiers.
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The Kootenai County Sheriff's marine deputies say a man severed his foot in a collision between a powerboat and a personal watercraft on Lower Twin Lakes.
The deputies say 40-year-old Jon Carlson of Merced, Calif. was operating a 19-foot boat and 48-year-old Brynne Malone of Deer Park, Wash. was operating a Sea-Doo personal watercraft Saturday when they realized they were about to collide. Malone turned hard to the left, which threw him from the watercraft, and Carlson turned sharply to the right.
Malone was struck by the propeller of Carlson's boat, severing his left foot above the ankle.
