Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of three Huron Mountain Club employees involved in a fatal boating accident Wednesday on a Marquette County lake.
The employees were working on Mountain Lake in a 16 foot flat bottom boat winterizing campsites around the lake when a wave came over the side of the boat, causing it to capsize.
The deceased is 48-year-old Paul Albert-Charles Maki of Big Bay. The survivors are 29-year-old Charles Edward Demay and 29-year-old Suzette Michelle Stephenson, both from Big Bay.
Deputies say personal flotation devices were in the boat but not being worn at the time of the incident.
