A Wapakoneta man flipped his canoe Sunday afternoon in Bresler Reservoir, prompting rescue crews to assist him.

American Township and Lima fire departments were dispatched around 4:20 p.m. Sunday to the Bresler Reservoir, where Stephen Walter, 54, was treading in choppy waters.

American Township crews went out on a boat and picked up Walter, who was in the cold water for more than 20 minutes. He was taken to Lima Memorial Health System and treated for hypothermia.
