Victim Brady Hruska on WEM football team

ELYSIAN — A boat carrying five duck hunters capsized on Lake Elysian early

Saturday morning, leaving one young man dead.

The body of Brady Hruska, 17, of Waterville was recovered early Saturday


The Waseca County Sheriff's Department said the boat capsized about 200 feet

from shore. Other hunters on the lake and on shore heard shouts for help and

called 911 at 6:10 a.m.

Hunters on the lake were able to rescue four of the hunters and take them to

shore. They reportedly sustained no serious injuries.

Hruska was on the Waterville-Elysian-Morristown football team that was

scheduled to play in a playoff game Saturday night.

Assisting at the scene were the Le Sueur County Sheriff's dive team, State

Patrol helicopter, and police and fire rescue personnel from several area

communities and counties.
