  • YouTube									A runaway boat caused property damage and injured 10 people on Lake Gage in Indiana on July 15

A high-speed boating accident on Lake Gage Saturday evening injured several of the boat's 10 occupants, Indiana Conservation Officers said.

Two people were airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital - one with a skull fracture and another with a partial lower arm amputation.

A minor was charged with boating while intoxicated after a runaway boat injured 10 people in IN over the weekend.

Multiple agencies - including IN conservation officers, the Steuben County Sheriff's Department and Parkview Samaritan helicopter - responded to Lake Gage about 7:15 p.m. Saturday on reports that several people were IN the water with serious injuries, the news release said. The boat's wild tear was captured on cellphone video.

Investigators say the boat's 20-year-old operator was speeding when he cut into a sharp turn, throwing everyone off. Other people who were hurt were taken to a hospital in Angola with non-life threatening injuries.

A Ski Nautique motorboat that was involved in the accident was still under power and unmanned, circling the lake at approximately 30 miles per hour.

According to DNR Spokesman James Price, while the boat was seen circling at a high speed as it neared the shore, Conservation Officer Jake Carlile immediately threw a rope around the boat's propeller in order to slow down the out-of-control vehicle.

The incident, which happened just after 7pm, was all captured on camera as an unmanned runaway boat made a violent turn.

An Indiana conservation officer was eventually able to jump on to the boat and stop it. The boat then struck a dock and then struck the rear of the patrol boat and disabled the patrol boat's motor.

The incident remains under investigation.

The Indiana officer who finally brought an out-of-control boat to a stop said the incident shows just how risky drunken boating can be.
