The father and 9-year old son made it to the opposite bank, while the 16-year old swam to the light of the fisherman.

Brian Peak and his 9 and 16-year old sons went out around 7:15 Saturday night. Officials say that because they were wearing flotation devices, that they are alive today. The family was in the frigid water for approximately one-hour.
