OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The name of the man who was thrown into the lake after his jet ski began sinking on Tuesday has been released, according to News on 6.

Kevin Anderson, a mechanic in the metro area, was test riding a Sea-Doo when it started to sink. A bystander, Cheryl Tobin, was walking her dogs when she heard a scream and then spotted Anderson.

Tobin encouraged Anderson to swim to shore. She grabbed him by his arms and pulled him out of the water.

At around noon first responders were called to the scene and transported Anderson to an area hospital.
