Three men rescued after boat sinks in Wabash

LODI — Indiana Conservation Officers were called Wednesday evening to help rescue three men after their boat sank during a fishing trip on the Wabash River.

Around 7:40 p.m. the Vermillion County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from three men who were stranded on the east bank of the Wabash River in Fountain County, Indiana. They requested help after their boat sank while bow fishing in the Wabash River. Indiana Conservation Officers launched a boat and were able to locate the trio. The men refused any medical treatment and were transported back to their vehicle.

The men are identified as Alan M. Phelps of Dana, Ind., Michael A. Miller of Hillsdale, Ind., and Joseph A. High of Chrisman, Ill. While trying to maneuver their boat around a submerged object their portable generator struck an overhanging tree limb. As a result, High was thrown into the river and the boat began taking on water. The boat completely submerged and they were able to swim to shore. Once on shore, they placed a call to the Vermillion County Sheriff’s dispatch.

Neither of the three men were wearing life jackets at the time of the incident.
