Post #1  Post subject: Duck Hunters Rescued This Morning
PostPosted: Sun Jan 24, 2016 9:35 am 
Chanel 5 out of Ft. Smith is reporting the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, local fire departments, and swift water rescue teams were on the scene after duck hunters needed assistance this morning Sunday Jan. 24 on the Arkansas River near Vian, Oklahoma. According to Sheriff Ron Lockhart the men were duck hunting when their boat capsized. Dispatchers told 5NEWS the capsized boat was found near the Moody Boat Ramp in the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge.

Sheriff Lockhart said the men were found standing on top of the capsized boat around 7 a.m. The hunters seemed to be in good condition and were taken on a rescue boat to shore to be treated by EMS for exposure to the cold elements, according to Lockhart.

The Vian Fire Department and the McKey Fire Department assisted in the rescue. “They did an outstanding job with the rescue,” Lockhart said. “The Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Swift Water Rescue Team has made around 14 rescues in the past year.” ... unty-lake/
