    Default Possible Drowings

    Not from a canoe but:

    Three boys are missing on Fish Lake. Eight boys were camping on an island, Saturday, April 29. Five of them got into a small 12 foot boat and made for shore. The boat took on water in the high waves and sunk. A man cutting wood on shore saw the boat plow into a high wave. When he looked again, he didn't see the boat.

    Two of the boys, age 16 and 17, were pulled into another fishing boat. Three of the boys, age 16 to 19, have not yet been located in the 50 degree F water. Sheriff's rescue squad and helicopter are still searching. There were no life jackets in the boat.

    Fish Lake is a rather large lake about 1/2 mile, as the crow flies, from where we live.
