Man’s Foot Severed During Jetski Incident On Percy Priest Lake

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man’s foot was severed Saturday, during an incident involving a jetski on Percy Priest Lake.

The incident was reported around 3 p.m. near Elm Hill Marina, just off of Bell Road. 

Two men in their mid-20s were apparently out on the water riding a jetski and an inner tube. Neither of their identities was known.

The waterski rope somehow managed to wrap around one of the men’s feet. When the jetski accelerated, the rope severed the foot of the man riding in the tube.

He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was expected to make a full recovery. Divers attempted to recovery the severed foot but were not able to find it.
