MARION, Ind. — A kayaker was rescued Monday from the Mississinewa River in Grant County.
Paul Bryant, 52, of Converse, was kayaking on the river, which is at elevated levels due to recent rains.
Bryant’s kayak got stuck on an overhanging branch and capsized.
Bryant, who was wearing a Personal Flotation Device, grabbed a branch and was able to hold on until rescuers arrived.
Indiana Conservation Officers and the Marion Fire Department were able to launch a boat and reach Bryant. Bryant was taken to the shore and checked out before being released. He will be okay.
State Conservation Officers say it is important to wear a Personal Flotation device and use sound discretion when launching a boat in high water.
