Kayakers Rescued on Maine River

Maine Wardens rescued two kayakers on the evening of Nov. 30 after they capsized on the north branch of the Meduxnekeag River in the northeastern town of Monticello, on the Canadian border.

Josh Ford, 33, and Alec Dalton, 24, capsized after encountering unexpected rapids and debris in the river and swam to opposite sides of the river.

They were rescued around 9:00 p.m. but did not require medical attention.
