Teen who died in Lake Minnetonka jet ski crash identified

The victim was a 15-year-old boy from Chanhassen.

The juvenile who died in a jet ski crash on Lake Minnetonka last week has been identified.

Michael Patrick McNulty, 15 years old and from Chanhassen, died the evening of June 30 as a result of "multiple blunt force injuries" sustained in the crash, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Monday.

The incident happened on East Upper Lake around 5:45 p.m., authorities said. The jet ski McNulty was on was involved in a collision with another jet ski.

The teenager was pulled unresponsive from the water by boaters, with people attempting CPR before he was brought to the Water Patrol Headquarters in Spring Park. McNulty was pronounced dead at 6:25 p.m.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner called his death an accident.
