Two rescued after boat overturns in Lake Erie near Avon Lake


AVON LAKE — Two people were pulled from the water after their boat overturned Thursday morning.

The pair was out on a 10-foot fishing boat in the water near the power plant in Avon Lake, said Avon Lake Fire Capt. James Berry.

The boat overturned about 11 a.m. in choppy waters. Berry said the two, who were both wearing life jackets, were out of the water by the time officials arrived.

“By the time we got there, they were in another boat,” Berry said.

The capsized boat was taken out of the water shortly after, he said.
