Fishermen rescued after boat flips in Lake Texoma

Posted: Updated:

BRYAN COUNTY, Okla. -- Three men were rescued after their boat capsized in Lake Texoma Wednesday afternoon.

The fishermen were found in the water 100 yards from the shore between Platter Flats and Davis Acres in Bryan County, Oklahoma. 

All three men were okay and refused any sort of medical treatment.

"The reason for the capsize is the high winds," said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Scott King. "The waves are bad out there, so they're in the 16-foot flat-bottom boat and they just got overcome by the waves."

King advises that if there's a wind advisory, don't go out on the water.
