Boater Uses Prosthetic Leg As Flotation Device

A Wayne County man is crediting his prosthetic leg for helping save his life after a boating accident. 

Adam Shannon told WEWS-TV he was fishing on Dohner Lake in Chippewa Township this week when a seat on his boat broke, tossing him into the water.  

Shannon says an air pocket inside his prosthesis allowed him to stay afloat until he was rescued by other boaters.
