(KNSI) - Crow Wing County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call on Holt Lake near Garrison late Friday morning, on a report there had been a personal watercraft explosion.

Witnesses reported a 46-year-old man was sitting on the watercraft and he attempted to start it, gasoline fumes ignited and the PWC exploded, throwing the male into the air.

The man landed in the water and swam to a nearby dock. He had been wearing a lifejacket.

The injuries are unknown but the man was transported by ambulance to Mille Lacs Health Systems in Onamia.
