Published 4:31 pm Monday, February 14, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents rescued two men in Sabine Parish on Feb. 12.

Agents received a call around 12:45 p.m. that a vessel flooded with two men on board and was not able to return to shore on Toledo Bend.  Agents learned that the two men were fishing in a tournament when the weather turned bad and waves overtook their vessel.

Agents responded to the scene immediately and found the men around 1:30 p.m. about a quarter of a mile from Solan’s Landing on Toledo Bends.  The vessel was flooded and grounded in shallow water.

Agents loaded the men into their enforcement vessel and transported them back to shore where an ambulance was on standby.  One of the men was treated for hypothermia at the Desoto Parish Medical Center and released the same day.

Agents involved in this successful search and rescue mission were Corporal Marcus Delaney and Agent Dustin Nash.
