TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) — Rescuers from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada are getting credit for saving a kayaking couple who’d gone missing near Truckee, Calif.
Sheriff’s officials say they brought a helicopter unit and a search and rescue team to Stampede Reservoir Monday night to help the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office.
Crew members say they found the husband on the north shore of the reservoir, and he led them to the place where his wife was laying.
Officials say the woman’s kayak had capsized and she had extreme hypothermia.
The helicopter crew transported the couple to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
Sheriff’s officials say they’ve received several messages from the couple’s friends and colleagues, thanking the team for helping the two.
