BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old Suwanee man’s foot had to be amputated after he fell out of a boat that his intoxicated friend was operating.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes tells news outlets that one of Shane Malloy’s feet was completely amputated, while his other foot had severe cuts from the Saturday afternoon incident on Lake Lanier.

Bailes says Malloy’s friend, 19-year-old William Craven, of Cummings was charged with boating under the influence of alcohol, reckless operation of a vessel, having insufficient personal flotation devices and littering.

Craven’s attorney tells WSB-TV (https://2wsb.tv/1Rj7iWD ) that Craven was not drinking any alcohol and helped ensure that his friend was not injured even more severely.
