Fishers teen seriously injured on Geist Reservoir
The Times


An 18-year-old Fishers man was seriously injured in a tubing accident on Geist Reservoir Friday.

Alec Harris suffered deep lacerations, broken bones and torn tendons and ligaments to both feet. He was transported to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, for treatment.

Indiana Conservation Officers, responded to a 911 call to the Fishers Police Department, around 3:25 p.m., from the 17-year-old operator of the boat.

When officers arrived at the scene, located on the northeast end of the reservoir in Hamilton County, they discovered Harris. His injuries were apparently caused by propeller strikes. Harris apparently was thrown off the tube on which he was riding, and the boat towing him came back and round and ran over him.

Neither the driver of the boat, nor two 15 year old girls on board were aware Harris had been thrown off the tube, according to a police report. The operator of the board said he was unaware until it was too late.

No charges are expected to be filed.

with serious injuries to both feet. He was transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where he underwent surgery to repair deep lacerations, broken bones, and torn tendons and ligaments.

Indiana Conservation Officers would like to remind boaters of the importance of proper observing during towing activities. Indiana law requires that observers give their "full attention" to persons being towed at all times.
