Medical Examiner IDs Man Killed in Minnetrista Sunday Night

Reports indicate a boat fell on a man on County Road 44 in Minnetrista Sunday evening.

A 58-year-old man died earlier this week after an accident in Minnetrista.

Police Clips first reported on Facebook that a boat had apparently fallen Sunday evening, trapping a victim underneath at a residence on the 3500 block of County Road 44.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has identified the man as Roger Erickson of Austin, MN.

Emergency responders used trucks, airbags and hydraulics to free Erickson, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A report released late Tuesday indicated Erickson died of positional asphyxia and blunt force injuries. Time of death was 8:28 p.m.

Emergency responders from multiple agencies responded to the scene, including the Minnetrista Police Department, Mound Police Department, Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and Excelsior Fire District.
