A number of local emergency responders, including North Valley Rescue, were called out to help with a woman who took a tumble into the Flathead River yesterday . . .
A woman in her 30s was rescued after falling out of her kayak Friday afternoon on the Flathead River.
According to Brian Heino, search and rescue coordinator with the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office, she was able to get to shore but not up the bank. Heino said Glacier National Park employees had a boat available nearby and were able to pick her up.“I don’t know where they got [the boat],” Heino said. “They don’t normally have one.” The woman was cold but uninjured and OK.
The incident occurred between Blankenship Bridge and the Coram railroad trestle.
