Big Bear, Ca, February 12, 2011, 4:00pm - Two boaters were rescued in Big Bear Lake this afternoon.  At approximately 2:45 pm, a canoe carrying a man and a woman swamped near Eagle Point.  The woman attempted to swim to shore and a bystander entered the water to assist.  The man remained with the canoe and was rescued by a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputy and another bystander.  The Deputy used a nearby canoe to make the rescue, towing the male paddler to shore when unable to get him back into his boat.  Both paddlers were transported to a local medical facility to be checked for hypothermia and other injuries by Big Bear City Fire ambulance.  Rescuers were uninjured but cold.
