Wichita Fire Department rescues two after boat overturns

WICHITA, Kansas – The Wichita Fire Department rescued a grandfather and his grandson Thursday morning after their boat overturned in Twin Lakes Lake. It happened around 11:30 a.m. near 21st and Amidon.

Officials say the grandfather and grandson were fishing in a small boat when it somehow overturned. The grandfather was not wearing a lifejacket, but his grandson was.

When the fire department arrived, the grandfather was holding onto the capsized boat. The fire department was able to get both out of the lake. They weren’t injured.
