COHASSET, Minn. (AP) — One man is dead and two other people are injured after an extension cord fell into the water from a northern Minnesota boatlift.

The Itasca County sheriff’s office says emergency crews were called Tuesday afternoon to Hill Top Trail in Cohasset on a report that three people possibly had been shocked.

Twenty-two-year-old Robert Stoen of Owatonna was found unresponsive in the water on Pokegama Lake. Stoen was pronounced dead at Grand Itasca Medical Center.

Thirty-five-year-old Eric Hancock and 57-year-old Cheryl Hancock, also from Owatonna, are listed in serious but stable condition at the hospital.

Authorities are investigating.
