Kayakers Found Safe After Accident In Riverside Park

What started as a possible drowning scare turned into eleven people being found safe after a kayaking accident in Riverside Park.

The accident happened just after 5:00 Sunday evening.
According to Captain David Pillar with the Victoria Fire Department, a few kayaks rolled over near the boat ramp.
Four people ended up on the opposite side of the river without their kayaks.
Pillar says one of the kayakers hit a log and rolled over, and another kayaker tried to assist and rolled over as well.

“The biggest issue we had was just making sure all the people were accounted for,” says Pillar.
