Man caught in ski boat propeller killed

‘A 52-year-old man was killed after getting stuck in the propeller of a ski boat Sunday afternoon on Lake Sonoma, according to authorities.

“It was pretty gruesome,” said Lt. Greg Contos of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s office. [..]

Contos said another boater flagged down a sheriff’s patrol boat on the lake around 3:45 p.m. Sunday. When the patrol boat arrived at the boat, the victim was wedged underneath the propeller and already dead. The patrol boat then called additional help from the Sheriff’s Helicopter and the Army Corps of Engineers marine unit.’

You know you’re pretty well fucked when they have to call in Army engineers to get your body untangled from a propeller.
