Dexter Area firefighter Jason Hilberer said the department assisted sheriff's office personnel in the rescue. Hilberer said the man had been kayaking alone in the river when his boat became lodged in some trees and rocks near North Delhi Road, rendering him immobile.
Sheriff's office personnel were the first on the scene and used a throw rope to get the man on to the shore, Hilberer said. Firefighters helped pull the man the rest of the way up the bank to safety, Hilberer said.
The man had non-life-threatening injuries, Hilberer said. There was no information available on how the man alerted authorities that he was stuck in the river, Hilberer said.
