Boaters rescued Sunday
A number of people had to be rescued Sunday when the pontoon they’d rented from the Spirit Lake Casino Marina ran into trouble on Devils Lake in 40 to 50 mph winds and high waves.
According to Devils Lake Rural Fire Chief Garry Vick an estimated 13 people, including young children, were on the craft when the waves in the bay caused it to run aground on the shores of Camp Grafton. The Ramsey County Sheriff’s office, Game and Fish and Lake Region Search and Rescue led the efforts of the rescue which took place at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
Everyone made it to shore safely, there were no injuries.
