North Idaho deputies rescue 91-year-old man from Frigid Lake


HAYDEN, Idaho (KLIX) — Three northern Idaho deputies saved the life of a 91-year-old man who became confused and drove into a freezing lake Thursday night. According to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, Deputies Zack Perry, Cody Ragan and Tanner Cox are being hailed as heroes for springing into action without hesitation Thursday night in Hayden Lake where the water temperature was 37 degrees . The Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that Deputy Cox was on a routine patrol near the Honeysuckle boat ramp when the 91-year-old entered the parking lot and continued down the ramp launching in the lake. Cox called for more help and within minutes Ragan and Perry arrived on the scene. When they got to the vehicle, they noticed the old man was struggling to get out and immediately jumped into the water as he continued to slide further into the water. The three managed to open the door and get the man out before the vehicle was submerged. The 91-year-old Coeur d’Alene man was treated at the scene until medical personnel arrived and took him to an area hospital for treatment of hypothermia. The sheriff’s office determined that the man had become lost and confused, that there was no alcohol involved.
