    This is what happens when you don't get snow very often....

    HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) - A 21-year-old Hoquiam, Wash., man who decided to go sledding in the city cemetery learned two lessons: an 8-foot plastic boat is not a good sled, but it works fine as a stretcher.

    Police Chief Jeff Myers said the man found that his "sled" quickly picked up speed Wednesday on the snowy cemetery hillside, sailing through trees and landing in a gully.

    Myers says the victim suffered an apparently broken leg.

    Police, medics and friends used the boat as a rescue platform and managed to haul the victim out of the gully and up the hill. He was taken to a local hospital.

    Myers says it appears alcohol was involved in the sledding adventure.
