One man seriously injured after being struck by a boat propeller


The incident occurred on July 4th, 2024 at around 3:30pm at the 36-mile marker of the Osage Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks and Camden County Missouri. 22-year-old Aidan R. Lee was operating a 2015 Regal boat. 54-year-old Patrick C. Lee was an occupant on the boat. Patrick Lee departed the vessel into the water when he was struck by the propeller. He sustained serious injuries and was transported to Lake Regional Hospital by Lake West EMS. There was no damage to the vessel, and it was docked at a private dock.
