MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - Two men have been rescued after their rubber raft became stuck on a river dam in Mason City.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1zj7Mdq ) that police, firefighters and medics were dispatched to the Winnebago River dam around 3:30 p.m. Monday. Rescuers threw the men a rope and then pulled the raft to shore.

Authorities say 26-year-old Rusty Thorngren and 45-year-old Marc Ciska were cited for public intoxication. Online court records don’t list the names of attorneys who could be contacted to comment on behalf of Thorngren and Ciska.
