BROKEN BOW, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s lake patrol troopers have rescued four kayakers from the Mountain Fork River in southeastern Oklahoma.

Lake Patrol Trooper Jay Reich says troopers were called about 3 p.m. Friday after the four capsized in the river about one mile south of the U.S. Highway 70 bridge.

Reich says troopers found two people hanging onto trees and two others on the bank. All four were rescued by lake patrol boats with help from the Broken Bow Fire Department.
