BLOMKEST (LEARFIELD)–  Seven people are okay after a Memorial Day weekend boat rescue in west-central Minnesota.

Sheriff’s deputies say a speed boat malfunctioned Sunday afternoon on Big Kandiyohi  Lake with three adults and four kids on board.  A nearby pontoon rescued all seven from the sinking boat.  No one was injured.

Officers say the outboard motor fell off the 1974 boat into the water.

The boat owned by a man from Hector is considered a total loss.
