A 15-year-old Mankato teen is in the hospital after getting hit by a boat Friday evening in Jefferson Lake in LeSeur County in the southeastern part of the state.
The Mankato Free Press reports that Marah Elizabeth Bengston lost her balance while wakeboarding behind her father’s boat. The teen reportedly fell in to the water. While she was floating, she was hit by a second boat that was operated by a 20-year-old driver.
Authorities continue to investigate the incident.
