CLARK S.D.– A Watertown man recently avoided a court trial by pleading no contest to charges in connection with a deadly boating accident in Clark County last year.

Twenty six year-old Isaac Geiger was booked into jail May 16th, and is serving a six month sentence at the Codington County Detention Center for Reckless Operation of a Boat, which is a misdemeanor.

Forty nine year-old Christopher Kayl of Worthing, South Dakota died on July 8, 2021 when two boats collided on Indian Springs Lake. There was fog and rain in the area that day when one boat T-boned another, southeast of Black Claw Bait and Tavern.

Kayl was launched into the water, and died at the scene.
