Sodus, N.Y. – A 53-year-old boater was injured, then picked up by a passing boater, on Sodus Bay Sunday.
Deputies with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department said Marie Houser of Marion was driving a boat when she made a sharp turn, causing her face and shoulder to strike the hull of the vessel.
The action ejected her into the water.
She was picked up by a passing motor boat and taken to Sodus Yacht Club where she was treated and taken to Rochester General Hospital.
Deputies said Houser was wearing a life-jacket.
She received a minor laceration and contusion to the face, along with a possible broken or dislocated shoulder.
