Plato Teen Injured in Watercraft Crash on Lake Manuella


A 16-year-old from Plato was injured Sunday evening when his jet ski collided with a boat on Lake Manuella in Meeker County.

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office says Cole Stuedeman was taken by family members to Meeker Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

At 6:44 pm, the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a watercraft accident on Lake Manuella and learned that a jet ski driven by Stuedeman collided with a boat being driven by 44-year-old Roman Bloemke of Hutchinson. Bleomke was apparently not injured.

Authorities say the jet ski and boat both sustained moderate damage.

The incident is under investigation.
