Two Men Swim To Shore After Sailboat Overturns on Big Kandiyohi Lake

Two men are safe after strong winds overturned their sailboat on a Kandiyohi County lake. The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office was called about the overturned sailboat on Big Kandiyohi Lake early Sunday. Two men from Franklin, Minnesota – ages 48 and 51 – were sleeping on the anchored boat when a thunderstorm rolled through. Both men were thrown in the water underneath the sailboat and were separated. Both were able to swim to shore, about a mile away from where the boat was located on the lake and get help. The identities of the men were not released by the Sheriff’s Office.
