Some holiday weekend fun almost turned to tragedy Saturday.

A 20-year-old man was on a small lake south of Plainfield when he slid off the boat and into the water. He was not a strong swimmer and his friends had to jump in after him to rescue him.

They were able to save him but he was taken to an area hospital for treatment. The man is expected to be okay.

No word if alcohol was involved in this case.
