CUSHING TOWNSHIP — A Baxter woman was injured in a boating incident Wednesday, Aug. 31, on Round Lake northeast of Randall.

The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office reported a report just before 7 p.m. Wednesday of a boating accident.

According to the sheriff’s office, 56-year-old Harold Parduhn of Baxter was driving a boat on the lake when the tiller handle broke, causing the boat to make a sudden sharp turn. His passenger, 54-year-old Cynthia Parduhn, fell overboard and cut her leg on the edge of the boat. She was transported to CHI St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Little Falls by Mayo Clinic Ambulance to be treated for a deep cut on her leg.

Randall Fire and Rescue assisted at the scene.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
