4 hunters stranded in lake overnight

Three men and a boy spent a bone-chilling night treading water in Utah Lake after the 12-foot boat they were hunting ducks in capsized on Utah Lake. Eureka brothers Dale Terry, Wade Terry and Mark Terry clung to the side of the boat for nine hours until search crews arrived.

Dale Terry's 12-year-old son, Bryan, and the group's hunting dogs spent the night on top of the partially submerged boat, said Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon.

All had serious hypothermia and were exhausted when the sheriff's rescue teams arrived, he said.
