Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce was rescued from Sebago Lake in Standish on Wednesday after his kayak overturned into 48-degree water.

Joyce reportedly called for help after his kayak flipped over in the lake at around 2:30 p.m., according to Cumberland County’s Chief Deputy Naldo Gagnon.

Joyce was brought back to shore in a canoe, while neighbors stopped to assist. He was taken to Maine Medical Center and treated for hypothermia related symptoms.

The circumstances are under investigation by the Maine Warden Service.
