MOULTONBOROUGH — The 67-year-old man who was stuck by a fishing boat Sunday morning while swimming in Lake Winnipesaukee near Long and Dow Islands did not suffer any life-threatening injuries, an officer with the N.H. Marine Patrol has reported.
Sgt. Crystal McLain said yesterday that Edward Owens, 67, of Framingham, Mass., was stuck by a 18-foot fishing boat operated by Richard Dewling, 48, of Acton, Maine.
Owens was accompanied by a kayaker and Dewling told investigating Marine Patrol officers that he saw the kayaker but didn't see Owens.
Owens was taken to shore by Dewling and his passenger and police and the Moultonborough Fire Department were called. Owens was transported by Stewarts Ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia for treatment.
McLain said the incident is still being investigating and police are asking that if anyone saw it or has any information about it, they should call 293-2037.
