Barge runs over pontoon boat on Snake River

WALLA WALLA — Walla Walla County sheriff’s deputies say three people are lucky to be alive after a barge ran over their pontoon boat on the Snake River.

The sheriff’s office says a man with his 11-year-old grandson and a 16-year-old exchange student were night fishing and asleep early Sunday when their pontoon drifted into barge lanes.

After the three were knocked in the water, the boys swam to shore and bystanders called deputies, who pulled the grandfather from the river.

KNDU reports all checked out OK at a hospital.
