On December 18 at approximately 10:00 a.m. Sgt. Kyle Miers, who works in the CPSO Marine Division, was patrolling the Calcasieu Ship Channel near Bayou D'Inde. 

 

During his patrol he observed a kayaker fishing in the middle of the channel.  Sgt. Miers made contact with the man and then continued on his patrol.  Sgt. Miers had idled approximately 300 yards away from the kayaker at which time he decided to go back and check on him. 

 

While Sgt. Miers was turning his vessel around he witnessed the man flip his kayak and go overboard.  When Sgt. Miers reached the victim he observed his life jacket had almost completely slipped off and he was struggling to keep his head above the water due to having on rubber boots that were filling up with water.  Sgt. Miers was able to rescue the victim from the water and pull him aboard the CPSO vessel.
