Man severs foot after being thrown from Sea-Doo

RATHDRUM, Idaho - The Kootenai County Sheriff's Marine Deputies, the and medical personnel responded to the area of Twin Echo Road on Lower Twin Lakes regarding an injury boat collision involving a 19 foot Sea-Ray motorboat and a Sea-Doo Personal Watercraft Saturday afternoon.

Marine Deputies say 40-year-old Jon D. Carlson from Merced CA was operating his 17 foot Sea -Ray motor boat on Lower Twin Lakes. Carlson was plowing through the water in a northwesterly direction heading towards Upper Twin Lakes. There were seven people on board the Sea-Ray, four adults and three children.

48-year-old Brynne Malone, from Deer Park WA was operating a Sea-Doo Personal Watercraft and was approaching the Sea-Ray from the South, when he reportedly realized he was on a collision course. Malone took evasive action and turned hard to the left. This maneuver resulted in ejecting him off the Sea-Doo. Carlson, also took evasive action and turned sharply to his right.  Due to the close proximity of the vessels and Malone being ejected from his Sea-Doo and into the water, he was struck by the propeller of the Sea-Ray. Malone sustained serious prop injuries to his left leg and his left foot was severed above the ankle. Smith was removed from the water by other boaters and taken to a nearby private dock. He was later transported to Kootenai Medical Center for treatment.  Malone's foot was not recovered. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this incident. At this time, no charges have been filed.

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Department would like to remind recreational enthusiasts to be mindful of water safety issues and take precautions on this busy holiday weekend.
