Authorities say that a woman was critically injured on Monday evening during a boating incident on Lake Lanier near Port Royale Marina.

According to Division Chief Jason Shivers, Forsyth County Fire Department spokesman, at about 8:27 p.m. on Monday, an adult female suffered severe traumatic injuries to her lower body during an incident involving a single boat on Lake Lanier.

Shivers said that multiple fire and emergency personnel responded to Port Royale during the incident and the woman was transported to a local trauma center in critical condition.

The fire department’s water rescue unit was also called to the incident but was later recalled after the boat and victim made their own way to shore, Shivers said.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources was unable to provide more information on the incident as of press time Tuesday.
