NEW ORLEANS — A jet skier was rescued from Lake Salvador over the weekend, according to the US Coast Guard.
Our partners at The Times Picayune | New Orleans Advocate reported that a Coast Guard boat crew was flagged down on Saturday around 8 p.m. after the 52-year-old man had been missing for several hours.
When the Coast Guard helicopter arrived they found the man on his disabled jet ski and directed a good Samaritan vessel to his location. The good Samaritan then towed the jet ski and the Coast Guard escorted both of them to safety.
The rescued man did not need any medical attention.
