TELL CITY – Two men in a boat were able to beach the craft on the shore near Sunset Park Tuesday after it began taking on water.
According to officers at the scene, Shelmar Perry and Jason Pirtle put the boat in the river at the ramp in the park.
However, they apparently left the drain plug out and after engine trouble slowed the craft, water began entering it.
They managed to reach the shore and with the help of officers and others, tied a rope to a tree on the shore. They were working Wednesday to remove the boat.
