Three rescued from lake after truck and boat went under water

Posted by wlpo on July 1, 2011

Area lakes and rivers are busy with people looking for some R and R.  But things became hectic at Lake Wildwood in Marshall County after a truck and boat accidentally rolled off the boat launch and into water.

It happened just before 12pm Friday.  Police say a man was trying to launch his boat when for whatever reason the boat and truck rolled into the lake.  Also in the water were three people who couldn’t swim but they were safely brought ashore.

Varna Firefighters and members of the Peru Dive Team helped out.
