Tyler Scheid from Carmel is the hero.
As Scheid paddled out, the kayaker tried to reach shore but the kayak capsized. Scheid said he paddled over to the man, got him on his surfboard and paddled to shore.
Scheid said the man told him he had been out on the water overnight because he couldn’t make it through the surf to shore. Fire department personnel gave him aid. Scheid said the man was hypothermic and dehydrated.
