Ticker- Two teens rescued from Lester River

Fire crews were called to the Lester River just after 1:30pm. Two teens, a 13-year-old and 14-year-old, were swept down the river by the rapid running waters while they were swimming. The teens were able to get themselves to an island area, but firefighters were needed with ropes, ladders, and rescue slings to get them back to safety. The entire rescue took about an hour.
