Samantha Conover, her fiancé and some friends were out Saturday night having dinner on the water in Lake Thonotosassa.
Afterwards, they brought their pontoon back to the public boat ramp where they saw Hillsborough County Deputy Kevin Reich. He had been on a routine patrol in the area and was looking for two jet skiers who hadn't returned to shore as day became night.
Conover had seen the two earlier and feared for the worst. So, she offered Deputy Reich a ride on her boat to work together to search the lake.
They were looking for Christopher Snow, 31, and his daughter Alexis Snow, 13.
While searching the lake's perimeter, Conover and the others heard a scream.
"Help!" the teen shouted frantically.
"We're coming, baby!" the rescuers shouted back. "We're coming!"
The dad and daughter had been treading water for about an hour after their jet ski sunk in the middle of the lake.
Deputy Reich's body camera captured the thrilling yet emotional moment as the two were successfully pulled aboard the boat.
