Boats sinks on Lake Ellsworth

COMANCHE COUNTY_ A fishing trip on the water turned into a disaster Saturday night for some people on Lake Ellsworth. Lawton police say four adults and a small child were on a boat and were checking some juglines, when the boat started to take on water near Collier's Landing.

Authorities say the boat eventually sank and the people on board had to swim to safety. Fortunately, they had life jackets and an off-duty sheriff's deputy saw what was going on and came to the rescue.

One adult and the child held onto a tree in the water until the deputy pulled them to safety on a boat. We're hearing everyone is going to be okay after the ordeal.
