Video: Chad Greenway Rescues Two On Lake Minnetonka

Chad Greenway Saves Two Stranded on Lake Minnetonka

Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was at the right place at the right time on Monday. He pitched in to help two stranded boaters on a windy afternoon on Lake Minnetonka.

A KARE-TV cameraman, who was shooting a story on the dangerous water levels and high winds on the Minneapolis-area lake, saw Greenway help Crystal and Edward Alexis, who were taking their new boat out for its first voyage and got stuck close to the spillway on the lake after its steering failed.

The two had no idea it was Greenway coming to their rescue until afterwards.

“Oh, it’s always been the Vikings,” says Crystal, but her husband has a different view. “I’m a Chicago Bears fan, I’m just going to keep it real,” said Edward with a laugh.
