Three Tennessee men narrowly escaped drowning early Monday when their boat capsized in the wake of a barge below Barkley Dam.

Brent Dennison, 33, of Hermitage, Tenn., Jeremy Bozza, 38, and Jason Goforth, 34, both of Antioch, Tenn., told authorities they were bow fishing when their boat was swamped in the wake of the barge.

The men and their boat were rescued by the Grand Lakes Fire Department, but they lost their catch of several hundred pounds, said Assistant Fire Chief Chad Campbell.

The men declined being transported to a hospital by Livingston County Emergency Medical Services, Campbell said.

The incident happened shortly after 2 a.m. on the Livingston County side of the Cumberland River about 100 yards from the boat ramp on the Lyon County side, he said.
