Two men were out fishing on an airboat today on Lake Miccosukee when the boat flipped, leaving them stranded in the middle of the lake.
Fortunately, both men were equipped with life jackets and able to stand on the side of the boat until rescuers arrived.
Once rescuers were able to pinpoint where the men were located, they were extricated by boat, and brought back to the Mahan landing.
Neither of the men sustained any injuries; in fact, they didn't even get wet.
Leon County Sheriff's Office, Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Tallahassee Fire Department, and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission all helped in the rescue effort.
