Local Tragedy Causes Concern about Marina Safety
Michael Scott Knudson, 18, of Mancelona, Michigan died as a result of receiving an electric shock from stray voltage while swimming at the Duncan L. Clinch Marina in Traverse City, Michigan.
A preliminary investigation reports that the source of the stray voltage which caused the electric shock to Michael Knudson emanated from an electrical line carrying electrical power to a section of floating dock. Evidently, the electrical line had a short circuit which for an unexplained reason did not trip the circuit breaker carrying power to the dock.
