Video: Man rescued from Lake Ballinger last Friday
A man had to be rescued last Friday when his kayak flipped in Lake Ballinger in Mountlake Terrace.
Luckily, people heard the kayaker’s calls for help, including two fishermen who went to the man’s rescue, according to our community news partner, My Edmonds News.
The fishermen helped the man stay above water until the fire department arrived. The man was pulled from the water, taken to the hospital and survived the ordeal.
Now, there’s a video of the rescue, according to My Edmonds News.
The video was shot by Jon Pulling of Oneshot Productions, “a self-described fishing and snow sports addict and an amateur video producer” who always has a camera mounted on his boat, says My Edmonds News.
Watch the video below (but be warned: there are a few adult expletives here and there):
