WILLIAMSPORT -- A Clear Spring man who went over Dam 5 of the Potomac River in a personal watercraft on Monday didn't heed warning buoys, a police spokesman said Tuesday.
After the fall, Ryan A. Myers, 22, got back on his watercraft and rode it some more, then walked back to where he and another male had gone in the river, Sgt. Ken Turner of the Maryland Natural Resources Police said.
Myers was flown in a state police helicopter to Washington County Hospital, but did not appear to have serious injuries, Turner said. Myers' condition was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon.
Turner said Myers and the other male, whose name was not released, were riding separate personal watercraft in the river near Williamsport. Myers and the other male passed a set of warning buoys, then another set of buoys that mark a restricted area about 200 yards above the dam, Turner said.
