Missing fishermen found at Lake Palestine
LAKE PALESTINE - We're told 65-year-old Tommy Cook and 61-year-old Mike Ammons went on a fishing trip early Wednesday morning.
As the day and night went on family members began getting concerned and called authorities. We're told the men's boat began taking on water.
Officials say that's when the men grabbed on to a stump and spent the night in the water.
Authorities say they found the body of Tommy Cook this morning, and soon after they found Mike Ammons clinging to a stump, still alive.
Trooper Jean Dark tells KETK, " "He was very cold but he was able to articulate what had happened."
