Two men were rescued Sunday after their boat dangled over the dam at Pepper Branch Park for nearly three hours.Warren County residents Greg Cherry, 46, and Gary Cherry, 49, were the boaters rescued after their motor failed as they approached the dam and the swift current nearly swept them over the edge.“When the boat almost went over, it was pretty scary,” admitted Gary. “Then we started to think about what we’d do in a worst-case scenario. We thought we might go over.”Added Greg, “We were ready to get wet.”The brothers said they were enjoying a good day fishing when their motor went out close to the dam.
