  • A 20-year-old Kansas man suffered severe injuries when a boating accident caused him to come in contact with a running propeller.
    Matthew Huddleston was a passenger in a 2013 Voyager Pontoon driven by Matthew Keheley, 22. As Keheley decelerated in South Buck Creek Cove at Bass Point Resort in Morgan County, Huddleston lost his balance and fell overboard. While in the water, Huddleston was run over by the propeller of the pontoon.
    Huddleston was taken by ambulance to Eldon, then evacuated by helicopter to University Hospital in Columbia for treatment.
    The incident occurred Monday evening around 5:40 p.m.
