(Fox 13) – A couple of off-duty Pasco County deputies enjoying a day on the water still managed to save lives when the spotted some boaters in trouble.

Body camera video shows the second part of the heroic rescue, but before on-duty deputies showed up, two off-duty deputies, who were deep sea fishing in the gulf, west of Port Richey, spotted some boaters in trouble, just in time.

“I saw something that didn’t look right,” said Deputy William Gay. “I was like, ‘Yeah, they are waving. There’s people in the water.’”

There were three people in the distance. Deputies Sean Powers and William Gay saw the men, whose boat had already sunk, so they pulled anchor and took off.

“There was no waiting. Just go. Just go,” Gay said.

 They were able to pull the men, who weren’t wearing life jackets, from the water. One of them had a head injury.

“They were very worn out. The first guy we got on, they could barely get up the staircase. We had to help him up,” Gay said.
