HIGH SCHOOL ANGLERS RESCUE SEVERAL DURING TOURNAMENT

Boat Accident

Two young anglers managed to save two other high school students and an adult out of Pickwick Lake as their boat sank.

It happened Saturday, April 20, during an Alabama Student Angler Bass Fishing Association tournament.

Sardis High School 10th graders Garrett Howington and Issac Darden said they heard one of the other teams crying for help. The back of their boat was filling with water.

Howington and Darden got their boat close enough to the sinking one to save the two students and an adult from Arab High School and get them to safety.
