Woman rescued from Conesus Lake after tubing accident

CONESUS LAKE, N.Y. (WHEC) – A woman was rescued after a tubing accident Saturday on Conesus Lake.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call for a female struggling in the water near the McPherson’s Point area.

Neighbors spotted her from shore, got on their boat, pulled the unresponsive woman out of the water and performed CPR until EMS arrived.

She was transported to Strong Hospital and is currently listed in guarded condition.

Investigation revealed that the woman fell off a tube and then was separated from the pontoon boat she was on. Something apparently went wrong with the boat and it was unable to turn around to get her.

The Sheriff’s office says the woman’s life jacket was not the right size and her boat inexperience was listed as contributing factors.
