Osage Beach Firefighters Jump Onto Out-of-Control Boat to Stop it

Two firefighters from Osage Beach are drawing well-deserved praise for stopped an out of control boat, and how they stopped it.

Officials say Chris Holden and Judd Douglas arrived at Lake of the Ozarks to a boat that was circling, with the passenger holding on to the side Tuesday morning.

In order to get to the boat, the two men commandeered a personal watercraft to get close to the boat.

Once near the boat, witnesses say Holden jumped from the PWC onto the boat, stopped the boat and got the passengers to safety.

No injuries were reported.

The investigation is now being run by the Missouri State Highway Patrol to determine what may have caused the boat to malfunction.
