(ANGOLA) - Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a personal injury boating incident that occurred on Sunday at approximately 12:39 p.m.

26-year-old Aaron J. Mossburg of Ohio was operating a personal watercraft with a passenger, and towing 24-year-old Jacob P. Mossburg of Ohio on a tube on in the first basin of Lake James.

Jacob Mossburg's arm became entangled in the tow rope and received a severe laceration.

Jacob Mossburg was then transported to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne for treatment of his injury.
