LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. — A 72-year-old woman is in serious condition after nearly drowning in Lake of the Ozarks.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a woman was on a dock near the 21-mile marker of the lake when she fell off the dock and hit her head.
Authorities believed hitting her head caused her to go unconscious into the water, and was found floating face down. Family and friends were able to pull the woman out of the water and she was taken to Lake Regional Hospital.
