MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (WCCO) -- Four boaters survived after their pontoon went over a dam at Lake Zumbro in Wabasha County.
It happened around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, August 24. The Wabasha County Sheriff’s Office says one person was able to jump off the pontoon before it went over the dam.
Three others stayed inside, and fell the roughly 50 feet before the pontoon landed upright. Everyone was safe, but one person was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators said they believe alcohol and darkness played a role.
