Maine Teen Swims 600 Yards to Save Father, Sister after Fishing Boat Capsizes

Saved by the Jacket

The ordeal began Sunday afternoon when the 12-foot aluminum boat the three were traveling in started taking on water. It eventually filled up and flipped over, sending Kiana, her 14-year-old sister Cierrah and their father, Gary, into the pond. French, after helping her sister into a life jacket, then decided to swim around 600 yards to shore to seek help.
