JEFFERSON, Ore. (AP) - Two people and a dog were rescued off a bank of the Santiam River north of Albany after the canoe they were in flipped.

Jefferson Fire Chief Jon Zeilman told The Albany Democrat Herald (https://bit.ly/1H00u0z ) that the trio was uninjured.

The incident happened at about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, near where the main fork of the Santiam pours into the Willamette River.

Zeilman said after the canoe overturned, the people and their dog couldn’t scale the steep cliff along the river to get to safety.

An Albany Fire Department boat picked up the stranded canoeists.
