Rescuer sees the light: Man finds North Dakota hunter suffering from exposure
Whitey Bommersbach was driving to work about 6 a.m. Thursday when he noticed a flash of light off to the side of Highway 11 in rural Sargent County, N.D.
"I just happened to look out in the countryside, and I saw a light out in the water and the cattails," said Bommersbach, a county highway worker.
He stopped his pickup and shouted toward a flooded marsh area to see if someone needed help.
"I hollered and hollered. Pretty soon, I heard something," Bommersbach said.
