Tahoe: Man Dives Into Lake to Save Drowning Woman; Kids in Boat Drift Away

Saved by the Jacket

A man on a boat in Lake Tahoe jumped in Friday to save a drowning woman but could not. Then the boat with six children drifted away until authorities found them in the middle of the lake by Zephyr Cove.

The children were unhurt, and the man, who wore a life vest, was taken to a South Lake Tahoe hospital suffering from severe hypothermia, said Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District Public Information Officer Eric Guevin.
