North Carolina: Kayaker rescued from river debris
North Carolina kayaker was rescued Wednesday after he got stuck on a river.
The man was stuck against logs and other debris in the South Fork Catawba River in Charlotte.
The debris had piled up near the Armstrong Ford Road Bridge.
Firefighters used a ladder to get a rope to the partially-submerged man to keep him from going under.
Then they used a boat to get him to safety.
The kayaker was loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.
