Fire Boat rescues father and daughter thrown from their fishing boat
Boat was running in circles out in the lake
DALLAS BAY, Tennessee (WDEF) – Dallas Bay first responders rescued a father and daughter out on the lake this afternoon.
They were called about people in distress on the water.
Dallas Bay Fire Rescue’s Fire Boat #1 used their Flir technology to find the pair.
As they pulled up, they saw a small boat going around in circles.
The father and daughter had apparently been thrown from their fishing boat and did not have a kill switch for the ignition.
They were clinging on for awhile, before rescuers fished them out at the bank of the water.
The team then helped corral the boat.
