Man who lost leg in boat accident thanks 'heroes'


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The man who lost his leg after falling off of a boat on Gun Lake over the weekend was well enough Monday to publicly thank those who helped save his life.

Cameron Cichosz, 20, of Howell was seriously injured in the incident late Sunday afternoon. He fell off the boat and says the force of the water pulled him toward the boat's motor. His left leg was severed by the propeller.

"I remember falling off the boat and trying to tread water while yelling at them to turn around and come back and get me," Cichosz said in an interview with 24 Hour News 8 from his bed at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. "I remember seeing the bloody, gory mess that was my leg."
