Two rescued after boat capsizes in Osage
Thursday, August 8, 2013
Osage Fire Protection District crews helped with a water rescue about 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Osage River near the St. Thomas Bridge.
District officials said a man and wife who were headed to clean out a cabin on the river went into the water after their boat capsized.
They held onto the boat, floated downstream for a time and were eventually helped by a couple of men in another boat who pulled them into their vessel.
Firefighters brought the boat to shore, and the couple was in good shape after being checked by ambulance personnel who determined the couple was in good shape with no injuries.
