EAST GULL LAKE — A 37-year-old woman who was injured after her legs were pinched between a boat and dock Friday, Juny 17, on Gull Lake, has been identified as Angela Remmick of East Gull Lake.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash, reported at 4:08 p.m. in East Gull Lake. According to the report, deputies and responders arrived and learned the operator of a pontoon was attempting to dock when a mechanical failure caused the boat to accelerate into the dock.
Remmick attempted to stop the watercraft from hitting the dock by sitting down and putting her feet out to stop it. She was unable to stop the watercraft and her feet slid under the front of the pontoon, causing her legs to be pinched between the dock and the watercraft.
Remmick was treated on scene for injuries and later transported via helicopter to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale. Assisting at the scene were the North Memorial Health Ambulance and North Memorial Health Air Care.
A Meal Train page was established for people to donate either food or provide a monetary donation to the Remmick family. The page was created to support her three young children and their caregivers while she undergoes treatment and as she transitions home during the recovery process, according to the organizer.
The donation page said Remmick underwent at least two surgeries so far. She suffered damage to blood vessels, skin, muscles and nerves, along with a broken left fibula.
