KING SALMON- A 71-year-old man was pulled out of the water early Thursday morning by Deputies with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Currently Ted Cooper of King Salmon is being treated at Saint Joseph Hospital for hypothermia.

The rescue occurred around 4 a.m. on Thursday in King Salmon after someone reported hearing a man yelling “help.” When deputies found Cooper, he was stuck in between a boat and a dock and hanging on a buoy rope. Humboldt Bay Fire assisted in rescuing Cooper, who told authorities he had been in the water for about 45 minutes. Fire officials say it was the deputies who saved the man’s life and that Cooper would have most likely died from hypothermia. It’s unknown how Cooper got in the water.
