Kayak Rescues Fisherman from Burning Boat


"A fisherman was trapped on a burning crabbing boat. He wasn't wearing a life jacket. He was in freezing water and he couldn't swim from cramping muscles and pure exhaustion. Miraculously, a lady paddled her kayak out to the boat engulfed in flames. The fisherman laid on the back and kicked his feet to get them to safety. It would have been a grim day for him if the Kayak Angel wasn't there!"


Remember to always have a lifejacket when going out on the water, and to always be prepared for immersion. This video was shot in Washington in the middle of winter with the water in near freezing temps. It doesn't matter if you are kayaking or canoeing or boating, your safety should always come first!
