BLACKDUCK– No one was injured after a boating mishap on Blackduck Lake Tuesday.

According to a release from the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, three were thrown from a boat as it was spinning in circles on the lake around 6:40 in the morning on Tuesday.

Civilian boaters rescued 64-year-old James Waltz and 56-year-old Brenda Waltz, both of Hines, and 29-year-old Holly Stevens of Austin, from the water.

The boat was recovered, and operator error appears to be the cause. Impairment, according to the release, does not appear to be a factor in the incident.
