Right Place, Right Time For DNR Rescue

(Peru, IN) - A Kokomo man has an alert DNR officer to thank for saving his life.


On Thursday morning, 76-year-old Robert Boyd fell out of his fishing boat in Mississinewa Lake near Peru.


Conservation Officer Hunter Law was patrolling nearby when he heard the abrupt stopping of a boat motor. Boyd’s safety lanyard turned off the engine when he was ejected.


Officer Law found the man just underneath the surface of the water and got him to shore, where paramedics took Boyd to a Howard County hospital. According to reports, Boyd was not wearing a lifejacket.
