Rescue on the Flat
Rescue on the Flat

It was supposed to be a fun day at the Flat River trying out the new remote control boat Cole Weston got for his birthday.  Instead it turned out to be another river rescue several days after a pontoon overturned on the same river.  Cole and his dad Case just put the toy in the water when 30-seconds out into the river the boat stopped working.  "It just quit" said Case, "then the wind kicked up and took it and started blowing it up river!"  Luckily, I happened to be out in our pontoon with my wife and son when Case flagged me down.  Case and Cole jumped on board and we were able to weave in between the shallows and rescue the wayward jet ski before it reached Belding.
