Serious motorboat accident on the Untersee: woman is run over by her own boat
The police also reported that the boat driver from Switzerland was seriously injured in the upper body and head in the accident on Monday evening. The woman therefore went overboard on the lake for an unexplained cause and was then run over by the boat, as its controls were still fully operational at the time of the accident.
Witnesses who had observed the incident immediately came to the aid of the woman, first taking her on board and then to the nearby port. According to the police, there was a collision with the motorboat of the injured woman and the helper’s boat, which was driving in an uncontrolled manner. Rescue workers were already standing by at the port to take care of the injured immediately. Shortly afterwards, a rescue helicopter took them to a hospital in St. Gallen.

Shortly before the woman was brought to the clinic, however, she stated that there was another person on her boat. However, Swiss authorities were able to confirm that the woman had definitely been traveling alone and that a second person had imagined that she was injured. Previously, the fire brigade, water police and the German Life Rescue Society (DLRG) searched the entire Untersee for almost two hours for another person.
The Untersee is one of the two lakes of Lake Constance, part of which is in Baden-Württemberg and the rest of the area in the Swiss cantons of Thurgau and Schaffhausen.
