Boaters Rescued on Lake Missaukee

Today two men were rescued on Lake Missaukee after their boat capsized.

The Missaukee County Marine Patrol found the men in the water around 1:30 this afternoon. One was clinging to the overturned 12 ft. craft, the other was using a life jacket and debris to stay afloat.

The Marine Patrol helped one of the men out of the water, while the other was taken aboard by another boater. 

The men say one of them leaned overboard, before water filled the boat and capsized. Both say the accident had just occurred and were very cold when help arrived.
