Report of overturned kayak proves to be false alarm


HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – The United States Coast Guard responded to the Lake Erie shoreline in Hamburg Wednesday afternoon on reports of an overturned kayak and a person in the water.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Air One helicopter also responded. Though the caller had the best intentions, the Coast Guard tells News 4 that there was no kayaker – it was simply a buoy floating in the lake.
