BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA (WKMG) – A Titusville woman is thanking an Army veteran for saving her life after the current took her hundreds of yards into the Indian River Lagoon.
Kay Reed said she and her boyfriend were at the lagoon Friday afternoon. She was floating in an inner tube when the current pulled her far out into the water.
“I couldn’t swim back in,” Reed said.
Her boyfriend, who was on the shore, called for her to come back, but she couldn’t. He was on the phone with 911 dispatchers when Army veteran Kyle Ahart saw what was happening.
“She was really far out there,” Ahart said.
The 34-year-old veteran who served for nine years and was deployed five times said he just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
