MN: Capsized Duck Hunter's Life Saved By Good Samaritan

BUFFALO TOWNSHIP, Minn. (WCCO) – Gary Veenhuis, 61, fell into Pelican Lake in Buffalo Township before sunrise Monday morning. The Albertville man was in the cold water for more than two hours.
Veenhuis said a speeding boat created a wake that knocked him overboard around 5 a.m. Monday.
When the cover for the duck-hunting boat became soaked, he knew he couldn’t get the boat back over.
“There was enough air between the back end of the seat where I was, that I could get some breaths, did the snaps and got rid of my coat because that was water logged, too,” he said. “I went down pushed things aside and came up on the other side.”
