A woman was rescued after walking away from her boyfriend — on Utah Lake.
A woman, about 30 years old, and her boyfriend were out in a boat in the Provo Boat Harbor area Saturday evening, said Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon. They were "a little intoxicated" and, according to witnesses, she got out of the boat and started walking to shore, Cannon said.
"The water wasn’t too deep there but it was a little difficult to navigate" due to the disappearing daylight and high vegetation, Cannon said.
Her boyfriend and witnesses lost sight of her, so at about 8:20 p.m., search and rescue crews were called out to the lake to find her.
They found her two hours later in knee- to waist-deep water, not far from where she left the boat, and "it looks like she’s going to be OK," Cannon said.
