• At 10:40 p.m. deputies responded to a report of a pontoon that had gone over the power dam at Lake Zumbro near Mac’s Park Place in Wabasha County. Four Olmsted County residents had reportedly docked their pontoon near the building structure of the dam, and after they left the area they had docked, the driver reportedly realized the boat was at the edge of the damn. Unable to get free, one passenger jumped from the boat and swam to a nearby boat and the other three passengers stayed seated on the pontoon as it passed over the dam. The pontoon reportedly came to a rest on a shelf below the dam, upright and safe. One passenger was reportedly transported to a local hospital for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
