It happened at Ririe Reservoir east of Idaho Falls. A freak accident that has left a couple dead and an Idaho man hospitalized. 

63 year old Mike Kingston of Idaho Falls was boating with his friends Neal and Elaine Jenkins of Utah when he made a turn that sent all three of them flying out of the boat. If that wasn't bad enough, the boat hit them as it spun around.

Of course bystanders wanted to stop the boat, but they had no idea how to do it without endangering their lives as well. Eventually the boat ran out of gas and slowly came to a stop.

Life-saving measures were taken in an effort to save the victims but 65 year old Elaine Jenkins died at the scene and her husband Neal died later at the hospital.

 

According to the Idaho Statesman, Mike Kingston is in serious condition at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with all those affected by this terrible loss.
