Fishermen make it to shore after boat swamps

The men abandoned the boat and tried to swim north to what appeared to be the closest shore, but the current was too strong, Garvelink said. They returned to the boat — and, after some time, left the capsized and sinking vessel and used boat cushions to swim to the south shore, where a resident spotted them and called 911 for help.

The two men were taken by ambulance to Holland Hospital for treatment.
