A big-time save by some prison inmates from Washington.

According to a report from The Columbian, a trio of prison inmates performing maintenance at a Washington park on Wednesday helped save three brothers -- ages 8, 10 and 16 -- whose kayak overturned in a swollen creek.

Two of the inmates entered the water to help rescue the boys, while the third assisted from the shore, according to The Columbian report.
