2 fishermen rescued after boat hits log

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Firefighters in an inflatable kayak have rescued two men whose aluminum fishing boat rolled over after hitting a log in the Lewis River.
Clark County Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy said a 64-year-old man from Battle Ground and a 66-year-old man from Vancouver were cold but unhurt after Friday's mishap.
Dawdy told The Columbian that the men crawled onto the log and out to an island in the middle of the river after their boat started to roll. A nearby fisherman heard their calls for help and called 911.
Dawdy noted only one of the men was wearing a life jacket. He said the river's water temperature is just above freezing.
