Great Sacandaga boat launch owner killed in accident
BROADALBIN A long-time boat launch owner died after a tractor accident Monday afternoon.
Lauren R. McMurray, 65, of Broadalbin, was mowing the lawn at McMurray's Boat Livery when the tractor overturned at 4:17 p.m. Monday, Fulton County Sheriff Thomas J. Lorey said.
Lorey said the tractor was just larger than a standard lawn tractor, and it was fitted with a roll bar.
The slope was too steep, Lorey said, and the tractor rolled over, pinning McMurray between the roll bar and a camper.
Lorey said McMurray's boat launch has been a popular summer destination on the shores of Great Sacandaga Lake for as many as 50 years.
