UNDATED--An unidentified 14 year old girl was seriously injured in a horrific tubing accident northwest of Richville in Otter Tail County on Saturday.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office responded to a boating injury accident just before 5:00 pm on Marion Lake.

It was reported that a boat was pulling two tubes with separate ropes, when one of the ropes snapped and in the process of re-coiling wrapped around the girl’s neck.

The Sheriff’s Office says the injuries required the girl to be life-flighted.

The girl did survive, but remains in the hospital, where her current condition is not known at this time.
