A Des Moines man severed his fingers in a tubing accident Friday afternoon. Zachary Vasey was riding with several other people on a tube at the 3 mile marker of the Osage Arm when several of the tube occupants fell off. As the vessel, a 2008 Sea Doo, turned around, the rope pulling the tube wrapped around Vasey's hand, severing 3 of the fingers. Vasey was transported to Lake Regional Hospital for treatment of his serious injuries.
