Two Eastern Washington football players are credited with saving a man who had fallen out of his kayak in Long Lake.
The news was first reported Thursday by the Spokesman-Review.
On Mazy 31, defensive linemen Dylan Zylstra and Ashton Boothroyd noticed a man who flipped his kayak in the river's swift current. At first, they weren't sure whether he needed help. But when he started screaming for help they found a rowboat and pulled him to safety.
The kayaker was examined by paramedics and did not need to go to the hospital.
