Water Rescue at Merrill Creek
Emergency workers from Merrill Creek Reservoir are seen here towing back a boat that capsized on Merrill Creek shortly before noon today. None of the three men were injured. “Only our pride as fishermen was hurt” one of the three men responded. He simply said “we lost our footing.” He also went on to say he’s been a fisherman for 30 years and this has never happened to him before. Their 14’ boat was towed back to shore and is seen here being put back on its trailer. The water this time of year is very cold. Today it’s 48 degrees.
