LAKE EUFAULA, Okla. – A man from Moore is recovering from a serious hand injury after a Labor Day weekend boating accident at Lake Eufaula.

Officials said 32-year-old Christopher Nappa was driving a house boat, made a turn and realized his boat was going to hit another anchored boat nearby.

Crews said Nappa tried to avoid the collision by pushing his hand off of the second boat but the collision severed his thumb.

Troopers said he is expected to recover.
