A Good Samaritan is being credited for saving two people, after a boating incident on Fish Lake.

Brandon J. Heidorn, 23, and Jessica R. Searls, 22, both of LaGrange, were in a canoe together at Fish Lake, Sunday evening, when for an unknown reason their canoe overturned sending them into the frigid water.

A Good Samaritan on shore heard their cries for help. He was able to rescue the two victims by paddling out to them with a kayak and helping them safely to shore.

Both victims were airlifted to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne, due to hypothermia.

The DNR didn’t rescue them so why show their boat. How about a picture of the owner of the kayak with the kayak. I have no problem giving the DNR credit, where credit is due, but that was not the case here. Way to go Good Samaritan, you saved two peoples lives, you rock!
