A duck hunter survived an icy dip into Owasco Lake on Sunday. According to the Department of Environmental Police, the hunter’s kayak overturned when he was trying to retrieve a duck out of the water.
He wasn’t wearing a life vest and had to be rescued by his hunting partner. A DEC Police spokesman says it took about 15 minutes to get the man to shore.
The unidentified hunter was taken to Auburn Community Hospital for treatment of hypothermia.
