ZIMMERMAN, Minn . - Six metro duck hunters survived a close call Sunday when their boat capsized, tossing them into the waters of a frigid lake.
Sherburne County deputies and Zimmerman fire crews responded to Ann Lake around 6:30 p.m. on reports of a capsized boat and people in the water.
Commander Steve Doran says Zimmerman firefighters launched a rescue boat and helped a number of the duck hunters to the scene. Paramedics examined them at the scene; some showed reported signs of hypothermia, but none had to be transported to the hospital.
On Monday the sheriff's department released the names of those involved in the incident. They are:
- Thomas Quinn, 23, of Big Lake
- Jonathan Quinn, 20, of Big Lake
- Michael Kevelin 23, of Big Lake
- Kyle Kevelin 25, of Big Lake
- Kenneth Grund, 22 of Clearwater
- Neil Thielke, 29 of Becker
Witnesses told KARE 11 that the boat was overloaded, but Commander Doran says the case is still under investigation.
