NC: Hunter clings to kayak, survives

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.
