Kayaker rescued in Georgia

Posted: Updated:

There was a scare in Georgia Wednesday when a kayak flipped on Lake Champlain.

Fire crews say the incident involved at least three people and one could not swim. Two kids made it to shore, but the third person was stuck, holding onto the kayak, moving farther away from land until crews arrived and plucked the boater out.

"I believe the incident started closer to shore but as time went on the person drifted...the wind kind of blew them out," said Eric Nye, Georgia Fire Department.

The kayaker was checked out by rescue crews and did not need further medical treatment.
