Fishermen rescue father and 2-year-old son from Lake Olathe

The Olathe Fire Department’s water rescue team and the Overland Park Police Department’s dive team were training together at Lake Olathe about 9:30 a.m. when they heard shouts for help. A father and his 2-year-old son were fishing in a boat when the boy fell into the water. By the time firefighters got there, other fishermen had pulled the father and son from the water and retrieved their boat.
