Two teens have been rescued after their kayak capsized amid heavy rain and high winds in the northwest Florida.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports a 17-year-old male and his 14-year-old sister were found clinging to their kayak in the Ochlocknee River Friday evening. The teens' father jumped from an overhead bridge to assist them.
A Wakulla County Sheriff's lieutenant and a deputy responded to the scene and called for a search and rescue boat. But the water became increasingly rough, so instead of waiting the lieutenant called a friend who came with his own boat and was able to rescue them.
Neither the teens nor their father were injured.
Heavy rains have caused flooding and roadway closures throughout the Panhandle region.
