HAYDEN LAKE, Idaho -  Deputies from the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department Recreation Safety Section and personnel from the Northern Lakes Fire Department responded to the Hayden Lake Marina on Hayden Lake for an injury Personal Watercraft collision that occurred around 12:45 Sunday afternoon.

When units arrived on scene, they learned that James H. Graham an 18-year-old male from Spokane WA and his brother, John M. Graham a 19-year-old male also from Spokane WA, had been operating Personal Watercrafts in the area of Windy Bay on Hayden Lake.  According to witnesses, James Graham made a sharp turn and John Graham ended up striking James while he was sitting on his watercraft.   James was transported to the Hayden Lake Marina by a private vessel where he was treated for his injuries by medical personnel.  James was then transported to Kootenai Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased due to his injuries.
