Rescuers go ‘far beyond the call of duty’

The story of Tuesday, Aug. 17 ends in heartbreak. On that day, 30-year-old Pete Jensen of Hazen lost his life after the boat in which he was riding was overturned in choppy lake conditions.

But in the midst of turmoil, the ever-strong human spirit shone through.


Boat capsizes

Tuesday, Aug. 17 was a characteristic summer day of 80-degree temperatures at Lake Sakakawea’s Beulah Bay. Catherine Allmer, a summer resident, was out taking photographs along the shoreline when she spotted a boat filled with six people laughing and visiting as they pulled into the bay.
