Fisherman resuces pair from Detroit lake

A veteran of the police force, Anthony Johnson, said he was wrapping up an unsuccessful day of fishing this week when he noticed a man in the lake desperately attempting to keep his disabled friend from submerging.

The veteran policeman Johnson managed to hold onto the disabled man while the other man pulled himself into Johnson’s vessel.

Scott Rozansky, 48, then rested before helping Johnson pull the partially paralyzed man, identified as Thomas Nierzwick, 49, into Johnson’s boat.

The men became trapped alone in the lake after Nierzwick fell into the water and Rozansky attempted to rescue him.
