Woman jumps into lake to help save duck hunters
Erin Houselog was hunting with her fiancé, when they heard yells for help near Christopherson Lake, which is southeast of Rothsay.
A party of five hunters were in a duck boat that overturned on the lake; no one was wearing a lifejacket.
So, Houselog and her fiancé found lifejackets near shore, and swam them out to the hunters.
"Stripped off all my hunting stuff, down to just leggings and a sports bra. Grabbed life-jackets, and decided I needed to swim those out to them, started swimming across the lake, 25-30 minutes to get out to them, for everything that went wrong, a lot of things went right," Houselog said.
A teenager was able to get to shore safely, while clinging to a gas tank.
Authorities cited one of the hunters for operating a boat under the influence.
