Fire crews in Scott County, Ky. rescue fisherman from dam

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fishing trip turns dangerous for a central Kentucky man.

Fire crews in Scott County - near Georgetown - say the man got disoriented in the dark on North Elkhorn Creek.

When rescuers got there, they found the boat about halfway off a dam.

The engine was in reverse and the man was clinging to the inside of the boat, trying to use his weight to keep it from going over.

Officials say the fishing boat was stuck on a log, which kept it from going over the six- to eight-foot tall dam.

No one was injured during the rescue.
