Provo • Deputies say they rescued two adults and four boys believed to be Boy Scouts after they became stranded in a boat on stormy Utah Lake.

Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said an emergency call came in from near Lincoln Beach about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

He says the group had been on a ski boat that stalled just as a thunderstorm rolled in.

Cannon says rescuers transferred the group to a working boat and drove them safely to shore.

Cannon says the situation could have been a lot worse. He says waves can grow to four or five feet on the shallow lake and make it dangerous for boaters.

Officials discourage boating when a storm is in the forecast.
