Sheriff Office

BISMARCK, N.D. – A man died after a jet ski accident on the Missouri River south of Bismarck late Saturday, hours after a kayaker went missing in the same area in an unrelated incident.

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier says the incidents happened near a popular recreation area called Kimball Bottoms.

The man driving the jet ski tipped over, sending him and a woman into the water. Both were wearing life vests.

The Burleigh County Sheriff’s Office received a report Saturday afternoon that the kayaker, a 41-year-old man, was missing.
