    Corps employee saves life of boater in distress

    In the blink of an eye the unexpected can happen, especially on the water. Imagine heading out to go fishing at sunrise to be the first to hit that honey hole in the calm of the morning. Fog gently rising above the water, slight breeze through the air, it seems like the perfect start to the day, until something bad happens. That’s how the day started as Trevor Lindsey, construction contract representative for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, started a 7 a.m. meeting on May 7, 2021 at Longview Lake in Kansas City, Mo. Just a beautiful day by the lake with a construction meeting outdoors, until he heard a cry for help near the lake.
