A young man is in the hospital after he got tangled in a moving boat propeller.

Alabama Marine Patrol Officers say it happened on Independence Day on Lake Guntersville around five in the evening in the Claysville School area.

Officers say 19-year-old Jesse Hart was trying to get into a tube when he fell into the stern of the boat.

His swim trunks got tangled in the dual propellers of the engine, which pulled him in and injured his pelvic area.

No charges are expected to be filed.
