Posted

MORSE TOWNSHIP – Five people escaped injury Sunday afternoon when the boat they were in capsized in gusty winds on White Iron Lake.
The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office and Rescue Squad, along with the Morse Fire Department, were called around 2:30 p.m. to a water emergency on White Iron Lake south of Ely, according to an incident report from the Sheriff’s Department.
All five people aboard a 14-foot boat were wearing life jackets when their craft capsized in gusty winds. Authorities said all five people aboard the boat were able to swim to a nearby island, where they were rescued and brought to shore. No one was hurt. Authorities did not identify those involved in the incident.
The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office reminds the public to always wear life jackets and be prudent in deciding whether to venture out into the water in arduous conditions.
