Rescue from Rain Swollen Lancaster County River

/ WDAC

LANCASTER COUNTY (AP) – Several kayakers were rescued from a rain-swollen Lancaster County river over the weekend. Six kayakers were reported in distress on the Conestoga River in Manheim Township Saturday afternoon. Dispatchers were told that three were clinging to their overturned boats while others were “out of control” as their kayaks were carried down river. A later dispatch said a total of eight kayakers were in distress. All were reported out of the river and accounted for later, but at least two empty kayaks were still floating down river. Officials said the kayakers apparently entered the water near Ephrata and got into trouble shortly after the river and Cocalico Creek merged.
