News Update!!: Lake Havasu City, AZ: Boating accident turns fatal.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has released updated information regarding an earlier boating accident that occurred on Saturday, April 21st, 2018 along the Colorado River near South Basin in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

** Picture from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office: **

According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 12:30pm MST, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center received several calls of a boat that had crashed in the South Basin of Lake Havasu near the Contact Point Water Safety Center.

Upon arrival, it was determined that a large boat that was traveling at high speeds had crashed and then sank. Several Good Samaritan boats were on scene, and had pulled two males, and one female out of the water. CPR was being administered to the two males.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Division of Boating Safety Personnel boarded the Good Samaritan boats and took over resuscitation efforts. Deputies then loaded the three occupants into different MCSO Patrol Boats, and transported each of them to the Contact Point Water Safety Center within minutes.

At Contact Point they were met by Lake Havasu City Fire Department personnel who took over life-saving efforts.

The occupants were all transported to the Havasu Regional Medical Center where the two males were pronounced deceased, and the female was listed in extremely critical condition. The boat was recovered from the lake bottom by a local salvage company. The boat was identified as the M35 (35 foot) Wide Body DCB known as “Lickity Split”.

The deceased were identified as Brad Kloepfer, 57 from Lake Havasu City, who was operating the watercraft, and Paul Selberg, 69 of Lake Havasu City, who was a passenger.

Another passenger was identified as Connie Davis Kloepfer, 58 of Lake Havasu City.

According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, Connie remains in extremely critical condition.

Initial investigations showed that all the occupants were wearing life jackets and the operator was wearing his safety kill switch. High speeds were a contributing factor in this crash.

The case of the boat accident is still under investigation.

This was the same boat accident that Mohave County Sheriff’s Office posted on their official Facebook page of the boat accident with injuries.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said, “Our thoughts are with the family and those affected by this incident.”
