Authorities said part of a man’s arm was severed by a boat’s propeller while he and his son were tubing Monday on Sanford Lake in Midland County.

WNEM-TV reported the man was taken to a hospital for treatment following the midday accident at the lake. A Midland County Sheriff’s Department dive team searched the lake for the arm for several hours Monday without success.

The accident happened near Sanford Lake Park. Authorities said waves pushed the boat toward the man and his son.
