Woman forced to tread water for 4 hours

LAKE MEAD, Nevada (KSNV) – A Henderson, Nevada woman who became separated from her family and jet ski when a sudden storm whipped up 8-foot-tall swells on Lake Mead treaded water for more than three hours before she was rescued Tuesday, National Parks Service officials said.

A game warden and a park ranger “miraculously” found the woman without a life jacket in the middle of the lake at about 8 p.m.

“She still had so much energy,” parks spokeswoman Christie Vanover said. “The son said there was a guardian angel watching over her.”
