The two men were duck hunting in a canoe along the creek when their canoe tipped over after hitting ice, reports say.

They were in the water for about half an hour before rescuers could pull them out. One rescuer says the males were dressed appropriately for the elements, and did not appear they were suffering from any immediate effects of hypothermia.
