A 46-year-old Trenton man was hospitalized Thursday with injuries from a boating accident on Swanson Reservoir in Hitchcock County.
Sometime in the afternoon, the victim was apparently ejected from his boat and the running boat began circling. The victim suffered injuries from the propeller.
Another boater rescued the man from the water and took him to the boat ramp. He was treated by emergency personnel and flown by helicopter to CHI Health Good Samaritan in Kearney.
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission conservation officers secured the boat and man’s dog. Game and Parks is investigating the incident.
