ALLEN PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Agents with the Enforcement Division of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries rescued an Allen Parish couple from Bayou Nepzique on December 8.

Agents launched a search and rescue mission when they received a 911 call in reference to the couple, who was stranded on the banks of the bayou along the Evangeline and Allen Parish line.

Agents retrieved the couple's 15-foot vessel and brought the couple to an ambulance that was waiting for them at Guidry Road Bridge.

According the LDWF, Mark Tarver, 26, and Michelle Tarver, 27, both of Elizabeth, were treated for severe hypothermia and transported to the Savoy Medical Center in Mamou for further treatment. Both are expected to make a full recovery.

According to investigators, the pair were out canoeing when they got caught in the fast moving water. They were able to exit the canoe and make their way to the bank, but they only made it partially up the side of the bank, leaving part of their bodies in the frigid water.

The Tarvers admitted to harvesting two ducks in a closed area. Agents cited them for duck hunting in a closed area. Hunting ducks during a closed season brings a $400 to $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail.
