Just before 5 p.m. Sunday, first responders were dispatched to the area of 3821 N. Morristown Rd. after hearing four people had capsized in a kayak and were swept down river. They reached a nearby island but were surrounded by swift waters.

The Shelby County Swift Water Rescue Team reached the kayakers and rescued them. One of the men smelled of marijuana; a search turned up pot and drug paraphernalia.
