    ROCKWELL CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 38-year-old woman was injured while snowmobiling on a central Iowa lake.

    The Department of Natural Resources says Jill George was operating a snowmobile Saturday evening on North Twin Lake in Calhoun County when she hit a snow drift. She was thrown from the snowmobile and suffered a serious head injury.

    She was taken to a hospital in Fort Dodge and then flown to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.

    George is from the Webster County city of Clare.

    The DNR says 24-year-old Hilary Hansch, of Fort Dodge, was a passenger on the snowmobile. She wasn't injured.

    Neither woman was wearing a helmet. The DNR says the snowmobile was rated for one person.
