Kayaker Rescued on Meeker County Lake


A Cedar Mills man is okay after being rescued from Greenleaf Lake in Meeker County Thursday afternoon after his kayak overturned and he was unable to get back in it.

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Office says at just before 1:30pm, a caller reported that he saw an overturned kayak on the lake and saw a kayaker in the water trying to get the kayak right side up about 300 yards from shore.

Authorities say the kayaker, 59-year-old Dale Schlueter, was wearing a life jacket but was unable to get back in the kayak. After about a half hour in the water, he was pulled to safety by Litchfield Rescue.

Schlueter refused transport and was treated at the scene.
