Logan Farquhar was severely injured after a ski boat struck the boat he was in Saturday night, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Farquhar’s fiancee, Billie Inman, says the propeller of the ski boat cut off Farquhar’s lower leg.
Inman says the driver of the ski boat fled the scene after the accident. Officials say the suspect was eventually located and questioned. He could face criminal charges.
Inman has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs and rehabilitation.
