PERHAM, Minn. - Four people were rescued from a boat Wednesday night that was stuck atop the dam conjoining Big Pine Lake and the Otter Tail River.

James Getzkow, 55, Danielle Getzkow, 18, Beau Hanson, 20, and Linette Payne, 18, were retrieved by Perham Fire Department personnel after their boat became stuck sideways on the concrete dam.

The fire department dislodged the boat and pulled the boaters safely to shore around 8:30 p.m. The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department, Perham Area EMS, and Otter Tail County water patrol also responded.

All four people are from Eden Valley, Minn. All four were cited for not using personal flotation devices as required by law.
