Pair rescued from water at Kentucky Lake

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Two fishermen from Indiana were rescued from Kentucky Lake after spending a half-hour in the water.

Marshall County Rescue Squad Chief Carl Curtner says the men were not injured Friday when their 20-foot bass boat capsized at about 6 p.m. CDT.

Curtner told The Paducah Sun (http://bitly.com/RW3CxH ) that a wave overtook the boat, broke the transom and motor mounts.

Curtner says one man went to Marshall County Hospital for treatment of mild hypothermia.

Curtner says there were no serious injuries. The identities of the men were not immediately released.
