Case Details:

On 05/29/2020 at approximately 10:33 pm, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a report of a boat that was taking on water on Lake Geneva, near the south end. The Douglas County Deputies and North Ambulance responded to a near address on Freedom Rd NE. The Douglas County Water Patrol launched onto the water. The single occupant was able to swim to shallow water and walk to shore. Turner sustained no injuries. It appears the boat was overtook by the waves due to the windy conditions.
