Local News Tuesday, December 13th, 2022

A swamping early Sunday evening on Truman Lake in Henry County could’ve been a lot worse for two people who escaped with minor injuries.

The highway patrol says it happened along the Grand River Arm at the G-46 mile marker when the 12-foot john boat was in motion and started taking on water over the bow before, eventually, becoming fully submerged.

The two occupants, 18-year-old Logan Ross, of Blue Springs, and 24-year-old Tyler Baudendistle, of Loganville, Georgia, were not wearing safety devices and were treated for minor injuries at a hospital in Clinton.
