Fishermen Survive Scare Of Capsized Boat

OSAGE Co., KAN. (WIBW) - It was a close call for two people fishing on a private lake Monday afternoon.

Osage County EMS says it received a call just before 3:30 pm that a boat had capsized on Beaver Tree Lake, south of Carbondale.

The pair was in the water for about 20 minutes before neighbors, including an off-duty paramedic, heard them. They were able to get the two people out of the water before emergency responders arrived.

Neither required medical treatment. They told paramedics they were fishing when their boat somehow overturned.
