Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a near drowning that happened around 6 p.m. Saturday in Choctaw County.
A boater at Hugo Lake found 21-year-old Zane Gentry floating in the water about 20 feet from the shore. The boater then loaded the victim into his boat and started CPR. The boater received no response from the victim and drove to Kiamichi Park Ramp where EMSA took over.
Zane Gentry's motor craft was found at the shore, running with a lanyard attached. The victim was unfortunately by himself so no one saw what exactly happened in this accident.
Gentry was transported by Eagle Med helicopter to Plano Medical Center. He is listed in critical condition.
