Three Men Rescued After Boat Hits Dam On Lake Carnegie

Patrols, Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, Princeton Fire Dept. and Kingston Fire Dept. responded to Lake Carnegie near Dodds Lane on Princeton-Kingston Rd. on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m,  after the report of a boat that was stuck on the dam at that location, with three boaters in distress. Upon arrival, rescue measures were undertaken and the three persons aboard the vessel were led to safety and the boat was recovered. There were no injuries as a result of the incident. The initial investigation into the report revealed that the craft experienced steering failure while navigating on the lake, and the current then caused the boat to drift to the dam where it came to rest. The men were contractors installing aeration devices to keep the lake from freezing at the dam. The investigating officer was Ptl. Bill Kieffer IV.
