 Eric John Pastoor suffered a broken leg and a cut arm in the 9:53 p.m. incident.

 Police said Pastoor was wake-boarding behind a 2010 Master Craft boat, and was outside the wake during a turn when he struck the lift.

 It was starting to get dark at that time, and that may have been a factor in the incident, Wildfong said.

 Pastoor’s condition was unknown this morning.

 The incident is still under investigation.
