ADDISON, Vt. -
Two women canoeing on Lake Champlain had to be rescued because they couldn't make it back to shore.
The women are in their 50s and from Chile. They were canoeing off the coast in Addison when strong winds prevented them reaching land. They spent three hours in the canoe before they were rescued by the Addison Fire Department.
The Addision Fire Department deployed their water rescue boat from The Champlain Bridge Marina and were able to assist the two boaters back to shore
