A man and his adult daughter, out boating on Milford Lake, were rescued Thursday afternoon by Crosby firefighters.

Crosby Fire Chief Alan Woods said a series of mishaps resulted in the boaters calling 911 for help. Their boat motor died, then the oar broke and the boat became stuck in a bog area that made it impossible for them to get out.

Firefighters were called to the scene at 1:33 p.m. Thursday.
