Man rescued from fast-moving river

SARTELL, Minn. (AP) — Firefighters in Stearns County rescued a man on the Sauk River after his canoe capsized in the fast-moving water.

Two others who were thrown into the river were able to swim to shore Thursday night near Heim's Mill in LeSauk Township. WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1ojtCol ) says the third man swam to an island and clung to branches until help arrived.

Authorities have warned boaters that the water on many rivers, lakes and streams is unusually high and swift because of recent rain.

The Department of Natural Resources ordered a no-wake zone on the St. Croix River from Taylors Falls to Prescott, Wisconsin. A high water, no-wake alert was also issued for Lake Minnetonka.
