DENISON,  Texas -- New details have emerged about Sunday afternoon's collision of two personal watercraft that left three people injured.

"There's nothing that I had ever been through that was going to prepare me for that," said Grandpappy Point Marina fuel dock manager Dylan Armstrong, who helped first responders deal with the wounded.

"We weren't real sure on what had happened... we just knew there was one girl hanging off the back," he said.

Armstrong and a co-worker rushed outside to help,  bringing any supplies they could.

The Texas Game Warden's office said three people were injured after two personal watercraft collided near Grandpappy Point Marina. A 25-year-old woman was airlifted to a Dallas-area hospital with broken bones and a minor head injury.

Two males on the same watercraft were also injured.

"We weren't sure exactly what went wrong… how it went wrong... but we somebody was badly injured, and we knew that we needed to do what we could," Armstrong said.

Family members said all of the injured are expected to make full recoveries.

"Being out at the lake, that has the chance to happen anytime because mistakes happen all the time," Armstrong said. "Just hope that nobody else has to go through that."
