Two kayakers are OK after their boat overturned while they were on the high waters of the Sangamon River Thursday.
The kayak became entangled in a tree and tipped over.
The two people on board… who were wearing life vests… were able to hang on to the tree while other kayakers with them called for help.
Numerous rescue agencies responded… but a couple of fishermen reached the kayakers first and pulled them to safety.
No one was injured.
