A 28-year-old man seriously injured Sunday by a boat propeller at Pyramid Lake is improving at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, is listed in critical but in stable condition in the intensive care unit, said hospital spokeswoman Katreena Salgado.

The man was airlifted to Henry Mayo from Pyramid lake Sunday morning after he was cut by the propeller of a boat and suffered a 12-inch laceration across his abdomen.

Deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Parks Bureau said Sunday that the victim had been in the water trying to free fishing line from the propeller of his boat when someone turned on the engine and put the boat in reverse.
