EAST GULL LAKE — A 37-year-old woman suffered injuries Friday, June 17, after she was pinched between a dock and a boat on 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.
The woman 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.
The female was treated on scene for injuries and later transported via helicopter to a Twin Cities area hospital.
Assisting at the scene were the North Memorial Health Ambulance and North Memorial Health Air Care.
