Police Save Two Stranded Boaters after Vessel Capsizes!

Description via Pio Seminole Sheriff: “On Saturday, members of the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Aviation Unit teamed up with the Seminole County Fire Department to rescue two men after their boat capsized on Lake Harney. It all started at around 11:15 a.m., when the men stated their boat suddenly started taking on water and within 10 minutes overturned. Our SCSO Alert helicopter responded and quickly located the men in the middle of the massive lake, still holding on to the sinking boat. Flight crew members deployed emergency inflatable devices to help keep the men afloat and then guided a Seminole County Fire Department rescue team to their location. Both men were assisted into the rescue boat and transported safely back to land.”
