STOCKTON – Brian Meyer, 55, and his son, Patrick Meyer, 20, both
of Dunkirk, began deer hunting on Chautauqua Road and eventually
lost their bearings, ending up in a swamp at the edge of Bear Lake
about 2 p.m., deputies said.
The pair became stuck in the
mud and water and called for help from a mobile phone. The rescue
was complicated by mud and trees, authorities said.
Meyer was taken by ambulance to Brooks Hospital for treatment of
hypothermia. His son was treated at the scene and released.
