A man has been taken to the hospital after his boat capsized on the Canadian River early Tuesday morning.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office was called to the river on Luther Rd. near NE 23rd St. Authorities say the man took off in a boat around 1 a.m. A second person reportedly went in after the person after they witnessed the boat flip over.

A third person at the scene called 911 once neither person came back.

Deputies say both men came back to shore about an hour later near Harrah Rd. and Highway 62. One man was taken to an area hospital. His condition was unknown.
