BRECKSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Three teenagers in northeast Ohio have been rescued after they were swept away by strong currents in a creek.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Chippewa Creek Gorge in Brecksville. Officials say two girls and a boy were in a no-swimming zone when they were swept about 100 feet away by the water’s current.

The teens were able to climb up on rocks and rescue crews brought them to safety. They weren’t seriously injured, but one of the teens was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The creek was at flood levels because of heavy rainfall earlier in the day.
