Two Men Rescued From Swollen Sauk River

Abby Faulkner

SPRING HILL TOWNSHIP — Two Twin Cities men had to be rescued from the Sauk River in Spring Hill Township Friday evening.

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Department got a call from a man who said two men from their group capsized their canoe and were clinging to some branches.

Authorities were able to “ping” the man’s cell phone and arrive to find the men in the river. A rescue rope was thrown to the two men and they were pulled to safety.

The group of six men were canoeing down the river with plans to camp at Spring Hill Park. The group, mostly in their 40′s, were not hurt in the incident. One of their canoes remains at the bottom of the river.
