Minnesota would be the first state in the nation to require carbon monoxide detectors on some boats, under a bill that cleared committees in both the House and Senate yesterday (Tues). The votes came following testimony from Edina mother, Doctor Courtney Baechler, whose daugher Sophia died after an outing on Lake Minnetonka last October. A tearful Baechler told lawmakers if there had been a 20-dollar C-O detector on the boat, her beautiful girl would still be here. She asked lawmakers to make sure that such a tragedy never occurs again. The bill would require C-O detectors in boats over a certain size with enclosed cabins.
