BUFFALO, Minn. - A man whose boat capsized on a Wright County lake Monday morning was rescued and is being treated for exposure.
The man, identified by the sheriff's office as a 61-year-old from Albertville, was on Pelican Lake in Buffalo Township when his boat capsized. The man told sheriff's officials that the wake of a passing boat caused his boat to tip just before 6:30 a.m.
A boater who was nearby on the lake spotted the man clinging to the top of his overturned boat and rescued him. The 61-year-old man was already on shore by the time officials arrived to assist.
Sheriff's deputies say the man whose boat overturned was not wearing a life jacket. He is being treated at an area hospital for exposure.
