HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Wildlife officers say a man seriously hurt in a boating accident on Mountain Island Lake on Saturday afternoon will have a long recovery.

They say he has several broken bones and a dislocated shoulder.

No one else was on board when the boat crashed ashore and into the woods near Arthur Auten Road around 3 p.m.

Med Center Air flew the man to the hospital.

His name hasn't been released.

Wildlife officers say they're still trying to figure out why he lost control of his boat.
