State wildlife officials say an employee at a southern Indiana lake rescued a man and his two teenage sons after their boat capsized.

Officials say Hardy Lake marina attendant Dalice Coomer spotted the capsized boat with three people in the water clinging to the boat Wednesday afternoon.

They say Coomer quickly launched his boat and rescued 55-year-old Robert Hunt and his sons, 14-year-old William and 13-year-old Anthony.

Hunt, who is physically disabled, told Coomer he would have drowned without his help.

The Jeffersonville man says his boat capsized as he was pulling one of his sons on an inner tube on the lake about 80 miles south of Indianapolis.
