FAIRPORT – A fisherman was injured Monday night in a boating accident on Big Bay de Noc. The Delta County Sheriff’s Department says a 33-foot pleasure boat operated by Richard Ranguette of Garden was traveling off of Fairport when he struck an 18-foot fishing boat operated by Gregory Frazier of Rock.
Two passengers on Ranguette’s boat administered first aid until Tri-Star EMS could arrive. Frazier was transported to Schoolcraft County Memorial Hospital where he is listed in fair condition.
None of the five people on the larger boat were injured. The Delta County Sheriff Marine Patrol responded at about 6:35 p.m.
There was heavy damage to Fazier’s boat. Ranguette’s vessel sustained minor damage in the accident.
