10 People Injured After Being Ejected From Boat in Indiana

The boat continued at a high rate of speed, unmanned around Lake Gage causing further serious bodily injury and property damage, according to the DNR.

Police said Effinger was arrested on charges of boating while intoxicated causing injury and being a minor in possession of alcohol.

The 21-foot boat ran amok in Lake Gage at about 30 miles per hour after the operator and nine others were thrown yesterday.

According to Fort Wayne's NBC, Effinger was released on bond from the Steuben County Jail.

Almost a dozen people were ejected from a boat that started spinning out of control at a lake in Indiana.

One person lost an arm as a result of the crash while another has a fractured skull.

Information at the time was that there were 10 occupants ejected from the boat with 4 possible serious or near fatal injuries.

In the video footage of the accident, the unmanned boat can be seen circling around at a high speed after throwing off people as conservation officers try to get control of it.

The DNR press release said that several of the injured that were in the lake were "immediately transported" to the shore by citizens and emergency resonders.

Conservation Officer Jake Carlile launched a Department of Natural Resources patrol boat as county sheriff's deputies urged residents to move their boats and clear the area, the statement said.

Carlile threw a rope from his patrol boat to entangle the propeller of the runaway boat. Carlile was able to wrangle the boat, but it struck a pier and then rear-ended Carlile's boat.

Sabrina Minser, an eyewitness, narrated the entire incident. DNR spokesman Price also said several other people present at the spot helped take victims to the shore so that they could receive instant treatment.

The boat was a Correct Craft Ski Ski Nautique, according to the DNR officials, NewsChannel 15 reported.
