Hunter clings to kayak, survives
January 12, 2011
REIDSVLLE -- Police say a man who spent nearly 30 minutes this morning in
an icy lake appears no worse for wear.
Henry Price’s kayak sank around noon Wednesday while he and his hunting
buddy, Thomas Mustin, were paddling across Lake Reidsville, according to
police. The two had been out on the lake since before dawn duck hunting and
were headed in when wind gusts tipped Price’s kayak, flooding it and leaving
the 32-year-old clinging to Mustin’s kayak.
Mustin called 911 from the lake and emergency responders were able to get
Price, who was wearing a life jacket, ashore. Price was able to stand on his
own and speak with emergency responders, according to police.
Price, who lives in Greensboro, was taken Annie Penn Hospital where was
treated and released.
