A state worker is credited with saving the director of a retirement home after she was swept away by a flood in Knott County Wednesday morning.

Knott County Emergency Management officials say Sergeant Greg Watts, of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, charged into rushing waters to save Hazard-Perry County Senior Citizens' Center director Kim Boggs.

Officials say this happened at a pay lake near the Redfox community.

A group of senior citizens were there for a fishing outing. Boggs was supervising.

Conservation Officer Steve Combs drove his truck into the raging water and helped load Boggs on board and back to safety.

She was not hurt.
