Barge Accident


Goodhue County Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call around 5:48 p.m. on Friday, reporting a boat accident between a barge and boat with several people in the water near Ole Miss Marina in Red Wing.


Responding agencies located 45-year old Jeremy Koenig, of Red Wing and four children in the water.


All children were wearing life jackets. Koenig and three children were treated at the scene and released. Life saving measures were performed on one of the children who was transported by ambulance and their condition is unknown at this time.


There was no alcohol involved and the preliminary investigation indicates the boat was having mechanical problems and unable to move out of the barge’s path.


This is still an active investigation.
