UPDATE: IFD said the man pulled from the lake has died. He was identified as 78-year-old Frank Miller.


INDIANAPOLIS — Several bystanders rescued a man from Lake Clearwater Monday afternoon on Indy’s north side, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department.

The IFD Rescue Team was dispatched to 8243 Clearwater Pointe around 4:45 p.m. Monday after receiving calls about a man who was unconscious in the water.

IFD said the bystanders performed CPR on the unconscious man until authorities arrived on the scene.

One of those bystanders, identified as Kimberly Bogle, 30, told IFD that she was boating on the lake with her friend Riley Quillen when they observed a boat with no one on board. They subsequently found an unconscious man, 78, submerged in the water beneath a seat-type floating device.

Bogle proceeded to grab a noodle and swam to the man, IFD said. She also urged Quillen to drive the boat back to shore and get help from nearby residents Geoff and Roseina Brabham and call 911.

“I told my friend Riley that he needed to get my in-laws for help,” said Bogle. “While I attempted to swim to the next closes dock and put the floaty under the man and swim as fast as I could.”

The man was brought to the floating dock by Bogle after she swam for about 100 yards.

There, Bogle was met by Geoff and Roseina and a UPS driver who happened to be in the area. The group immediately began performing CPR until IFD arrived shortly after.

IFD said the unconscious man was transported to Community Heart Hospital North Campus after pulses were regained. IFD could not confirm how long the man had been submerged in the water.

“She assessed the risk and knew her abilities to make a difference,” said IFD Chief Kevin Jones. “We don’t encourage you to do that because you might become a second victim. Be careful and mindful before you put yourself in that situation.”

Bogle is engaged to Matthew Brabham, an Indianapolis 500 veteran whose family has a long racing history. Geoff also raced in the 500 while Roseina is a former world-champion jet ski racer who still competes.
