SD Deputy Called A Hero After Lake Rescue

SD Deputy Called A Hero After Lake Rescue
Pastor Dan Overbo

VOLGA, SD -

A Hamlin County deputy came to the rescue when a father and son fell into Lake Poinsett while trying to retrieve a football.

Dan Overbo, a Lutheran pastor from Volga, and his nine-year-old son fell into the freezing water Monday morning when their canoe tipped about 60 yards from shore. Overbo says he tried to push his son to shore in the waterlogged canoe but wasn't making much progress.

A neighbor heard their calls for help and alerted Deputy Jon Barthel, who lives near the Overbos' lake home. Barthel ran to the scene, jumped into the water and pulled the father and son to shore. They were checked out at a Watertown hospital and released.

Dan Overbo says he considers Barthel a hero. Barthel says he was just doing his job.

Hear from Overbo and Barthel tonight on KELOLAND News.
