A southern Wisconsin man is hospitalized after a boating accident on a Bayfield County lake Thursday afternoon.

According to the Bayfield County Sheriff's Office, 58-year-old Thomas Wincek of Fond du Lac was injured in the accident on Upper Eau Claire Lake in the Town of Barnes.  Wincek lost control of the boat and was ejected, suffering severe lacerations from the propeller as the boat went around in circles.

Wincek's grandson, who was still on the boat, was eventually able to turn the ignition off.

Wincek is being treated at a Duluth hospital.
