Coast Guard rescues boater

WBFO File Photo

The Coast Guard was called for a rescue on Friday afternoon. There are few details, but it is known that a kayak was reported to have overturned near the mouth of the Buffalo River. A search-and-rescue team responded and an unidentified man was pulled from the water. The subject appears to have been uninjured.

The Coast Guard is encouraging boaters of all types to be fully equipped with all necessary safety equipment before taking to the water.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
