March 30, 2014, at Pyramid Lake, the observant actions of a Parks Bureau Marine Patrol Deputy potentially saved the lives of a five year old child, his father and another adult. The deputy was patrolling Pyramid Lake when he saw three people on a kayak in the main channel struggling to navigate in 25-30 MPH wind gusts. He headed his boat in their direction and noticed that there were two adults and one small child (five-year old male) on the kayak. One of the adults was wearing a life jacket and the other was not. The small child appeared to be wearing life jacket that was too large for him as only the top of his head was visible.
