Conservation officers reported Steuben County 911 emergency dispatch received a call at 7:13 p.m. Saturday saying several people had been involved in a boating accident at Lake Gage and still were in the water with serious injuries. Four of the ten were considered serious or near-fatal injuries.

Local residents used their boats to carry several seriously injured people to the shore in order for EMS and fire units to tend to their injuries.

One person lost an arm as a result of the crash while another has a fractured skull.

Conservation Officer Jake Carlile launched a Department of Natural Resources patrol boat as county sheriff's deputies urged residents to move their boats and clear the area, the statement said.

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. The entangled rope slowed down the runaway boat enough for the officer to jump onto it and bring it under control. Carlile was able to wrangle the boat, but it struck a pier and then rear-ended Carlile's boat.

Australian Woman Gunned Down By US Police
Friends and relatives tell the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/2tZtSB2) the woman was 40 years old and worked as a spiritual healer. Damond's personal website says she trained as a veterinarian and practised yoga and meditation for 17 years.


Carlile threw a rope from the patrol boat to entangle the motorboat's propeller, the statement said.

That's when it slowed enough for IN conservation officer Jake Carlile to jump on board from a jet ski.

Investigators say the boat's 20-year-old operator was speeding when she cut into a sharp turn, throwing everyone off. The boat continued at a high rate of speed, unmanned around Lake Gage causing further serious bodily injury and property damage.

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.

Alcohol was found to be a factor in the accident, conservation officers said in a news release.
