A friend that i bowl with was absent at our bowling league last nite.I was asking where this guy was when his wife said he is in the hospital with a broken back and in a body cast.Apparently he and his 10 year old son were out fishing out of Everett 10 st launch.They were just heading out when they hit a big wave he came out of his seat when the boat went down the trough and hit the next wave.It slammed him back down into the boat hard.The engine strap removed and the boat shut down.
Now they were dead inthe water and dad in serious pain and in trouble no VHS on board.Dad through the pain and near blacking out was able to talk the kid into getting the boat started again and back close to the Navy pier where their calls for help were answered.The Navy sent a boat and medical staff out to help.They were able to get the guy stable enough for a helicopter ride to the hospital where he is doing ok.
Guy owes his life to his 10 year old son who under pressure was able to handle it and is a hero.. clap: .
Story never made it to any paper.

thats an awesome story. If I have permission from you(or the son/father involved) I would love to forward it to a local news station like Komo, King, etc. That is an awesome story. The son deserves some sort of medal or honor for that!

Let me know if i can help with getting the news involved Tup:
