A KTOE listener told us that a boat capsized on Lake Elysian early Saturday morning containing high schoolers. We went to the park at the south end of the lake, near Janesville in the early morning, and found search and rescue teams out on open water looking for one missing boy while family and friends waited.
Waseca County Sheriff Brad Milbrath confirms that five high school friends were in a boat, duck hunting, when the boat capsized at about 6:00am Saturday morning.
Milbrath tells KTOE News that four of the boys made it to shore, two of them were taken to Mayor Clinic Health System Mankato where they were treated and released. But the search for the fifth, missing boy, went on for hours.
In the early afternoon, the body of Brady Hruska was recovered. Hruska was a senior at Waterville-Elysian-Morristown High School where he played football and baseball.
