Vikings LB Chad Greenway helps boaters stuck on Lake Minnetonka

A couple that was out house gazing on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota will never forget Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway.

The two-time Pro Bowler happened to be on the scene when two boaters lost the ability to steer their boat and became stuck, forcing the newly purchased craft to go round and round in circles. Subsequently, they started drifting "scary close to the rocks" when Greenway came to the rescue and hopped into the water, helping corral the boat and bringing it to safety in an inlet, then waiting with the couple until help arrived. 

"I just ran down, of course with my two little girls following behind me, trying to stay out of the way, and I figured I’d help them out. It looked like it was dangerous," Greenway said.

As you can see from the images and video, it was a pretty wild scene. 

The 2006 first-round draft pick even gave the wet couple a lift to their car when it was all said and done. Way to go, Greenway. Tip of the cap for the heroic effort.
