Three Survive Cold Waters After Canoe Capsizes in Lake Marquette
Three individuals were treated for hypothermia after their canoe capsized on Lake Marquette last week.
On Friday, April 2 at about 3:08 p.m., ambulance personnel transported three individuals to the Sanford Emergency Department to receive treatment for hypothermia after they capsized their canoe on Lake Marquette.
All three individuals were wearing personal flotation devices (PFD), which allowed them to make it back to shore safely. The individuals were treated and released from the Sanford Emergency Department.
In a release, Beltrami County Sheriff Ernie Beitel states, “This scenario ended well. Some unfortunately don’t. Cold water can kill.”
The Sheriff’s Office Boat and Water Patrol is reminding all boaters to wear their PFDs at all times.
