Duluth, MN (KDAL) - Two girls from Bruce are thanking an alert Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy for their rescue this past weekend. The 12 year-olds were on the Minong Flowage Saturday afternoon when their kayaks overturned. They were feverishly trying to right the vessels in the middle of a large bay east of Totogatic Park when Deputy Steve Olson spotted them through binoculars. After racing over on his jet-ski Deputy Olson said in his report, “Both girls told me they needed help. Both girls’ heads were barely out of the water. One of the young girls appeared more scared and tired than the other…” After bringing both onto the back of the jet-ski, the deputy transported them to shore and towed the kayaks in as well. The girls were not wearing life jackets and were just under a half-mile away from land.
