COHASSET, MN (AP) - One man is dead and two other people are injured after an extension cord fell into the water from a northern Minnesota boatlift.
 
The Itasca County sheriff's office says emergency crews were called Tuesday afternoon to Hill Top Trail in Cohasset on a report that three people possibly had been shocked.
 
Twenty-two-year-old Robert Stoen of Owatonna was found unresponsive in the water on Pokegama Lake. Stoen was pronounced dead at Grand Itasca Medical Center.
 
Thirty-five-year-old Eric Hancock and 57-year-old Cheryl Hancock, also from Owatonna, are listed in serious but stable condition at the hospital.
 
Authorities are investigating.
