SANFORD (AP) – Authorities say part of a man’s arm was severed by a boat’s propeller while he and his son were tubing on Sanford Lake in Midland County.
WNEM-TV reports the man was taken to a hospital for treatment following the midday Monday accident at the lake about 110 miles northwest of Detroit. A Midland County sheriff’s dive team searched the lake for the arm for several hours Monday without success.
The accident happened near Sanford Lake Park. Authorities say waves pushed the boat toward the man and his son.
