NEW HILL, N.C. — Two men were rescued after their boat capsized in the Shearon Harris Lake in Chatham County just after 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

The men were caught in chest deep water not far from the Cross Point Road in New Hill.

They called authorities on their cell phones, but rescuers had trouble finding them deep in one of the coves. However, WRAL’s Sky 5 spotted them and was able to help guide authorities to them.

Both men were pulled from the water and appeared to be OK.
