A U.S. Postal Service mail carrier called 911 when she saw that a small sailboat on the lake had rolled over.   The mail carrier also contacted her boyfriend, Bill Anderson, who brought his kayak to the lake.

The two men on the sailboat were rescued…and in good spirits after the incident.  The two men were identified as 38-year-old Matt Kierzek of Appleton, Wisconsin and 71-year-old Richard Kierzek of Marquette.
