10-Year-Old Rescued from Redfish Lake

Saved by the Jacket

A 10-year-old girl had no way of contacting help after her kayak capsized on Redfish Lake on July 2, and she was in the cold water for nearly half an hour before Custer County sheriff’s deputy John Haugh helped pull her out.

Haugh said the child was hypothermic when they pulled her onto his patrol boat at about 2:30 p.m. What saved her life, according to Haugh, is that she was wearing a life jacket.
