On Friday (4/21), the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety and Dive Rescue Team responded to the area of the North Basin of Lake Havasu in reference to a capsized watercraft, with several subjects in the water. Upon arrival, it was determined that a Good Samaritan boat had pulled all of the involved subjects from the water. Mohave County Sheriff’s Deputies, along with their on-board River Medical Paramedics, immediately began assessing and treating the victims.

It was determined that a 2014 Outerlimits 43-foot vessel was traveling through the North Basin of Lake Havasu when it lost control, and capsized. All three adult occupants on board were ejected into the water.

Two of the occupants were found face down in the water but were wearing personal flotation devices. They were pulled from the water by surrounding boats.

Two subjects were transported by fire boats to Lake Havasu State Park, and eventually Havasu Regional Medical Center in serious, but stable condition. Speed appears to be a factor. This incident is still under investigation. This incident shows that life jackets save lives.
