Jefferson Co water rescue a success
08/02/2022

(KAIR)--A Jefferson County water rescue ends successfully, with the four affected boaters escaping with only minor scrapes and cuts.

That’s according to a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks social media post explaining that Saturday afternoon, Kansas Game Wardens were contacted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. That agency was requesting response to a report of four overturned canoes in the Kansas River, with the boaters in need of assistance.

The release, identifying the responding Wardens as Entwistle, Arnold, Porterfield, and Cook, says the Wardens went to the scene, equipped with a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Rescue Airboat.

It was learned the four stranded boaters had gone over a low water dam and overturned their canoes, but were able to make it to the bank as all four were wearing life jackets.

The Wardens were able to locate the boaters and transported them, and their canoes, back to safety.
