All 10 people onboard were thrown into Lake Gage, including the driver.

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.

A DNR officer threw a rope from his patrol boat to the motorboat in order to entangle the propeller.

Dominique Effinger, who reportedly was driving the boat at the time of the accident, later was charged with boating while intoxicated causing injury and being a minor in possession of alcohol, Indiana Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officers reported. Among the 10 people injured in the incident, four were severely wounded.

Four people suffered serious injuries including a fractured skull, while another had to have part of their lower arm amputated. The boat continued at a high rate of speed, traveling unmanned around Lake Gage, causing further serious bodily injury and property damage. Several others with less serious injuries were transported to Cameron Memorial Hospital in Angola. The boat strikes a pier before striking a boat.

Additional Temporary Foreign Workers to Receive Visas
They are regarded as countries with the most total overstays that do not participate in the visa waiver programme. Until past year , guest workers who had already participated were not counted toward the cap.

Conservation officers are continuing to investigate the accident, their report said.

His boat became disabled, but Carlile was able to use another boat to eventually get into the unmanned boat and stop it. The boat rammed a dock, then a patrol boat with two conservation officers on board.

Sabrina Minser, who provided an eyewitness account of the incident, told 24-Hour News 8's sister station NewsChannel 15 that her husband escorted a paramedic out onto the water via a jet ski.

Two people were flow by medical helicopter from the lake shore after being rescued by onlookers, according to the DNR.
