ROCKWELL CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 38-year-old woman was injured while snowmobiling on a central Iowa lake.
The Department of Natural Resources says Jill George was operating a snowmobile Saturday evening on North Twin Lake in Calhoun County when she hit a snow drift. She was thrown from the snowmobile and suffered a serious head injury.
She was taken to a hospital in Fort Dodge and then flown to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.
George is from the Webster County city of Clare.
The DNR says 24-year-old Hilary Hansch, of Fort Dodge, was a passenger on the snowmobile. She wasn’t injured.
Neither woman was wearing a helmet. The DNR says the snowmobile was rated for one person.
