Boat capsizes and sinks on Tom Steed Lake

Kiowa County- A close call for three men on Tom Steed Lake in Kiowa County after their boat capsized and sank.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says they were on a 1957, 16-foot hull boat last night when it began to take on water. A 7NEWS viewer captured photos of the rescue operation. OHP says all of the men are from Snyder. 27-year-old Kasey Jones and 41-year-old Rodney Bartlett were rescued  and not hurt.
51-year-old Lynn Atkinson was pulled from the water and flown to Comanche County Memorial Hospital by helicopter. Troopers say he was treated and released.

The wind was gusting about 22 to 28 miles per hour when the boat sank.
