Five People Rescued After Boat Sinks
Five people were rescued after their boat sank in Lake Carlos in western Minnesota.
The Douglas County sheriff’s office got a 911 call from a boater saying their boat sank near the mouth of the Long Prairie River.
The 18-year-old who was operating the boat says the five were bow-fishing when he slowed the throttle, causing the bow to dip and take on water. The boat sank in about five feet of water.
Sheriff’s deputies and a person living nearby used a boat to rescue the boaters.
There were no floatation devices aboard.
