Boat on Lake Palestine overturns, both passengers able to swim to safety

Posted: Updated:

Two men were boating on Lake Palestine Thursday morning when their boat overturned.

One of the men called Smith County authorities to report his boat had overturned and that his boating partner was still in the water. Their boat apparently got hung up on a stump and began taking on water, rescuers said.

Noonday Volunteer Fire Department responded on the water and found the person attempting to swim to shore. Both men ultimately did manage to make it to shore safely. They were both wearing their lifejackets.
