EMERADO, N.D. (AP) - Members of a Mayville-area school track team that was running trails at Turtle River State Park are credited with saving two people from drowning.

The elementary- and middle school-age runners decided to go for a swim Monday night, and an 11-year-old boy got swept away by the current. A woman chaperone jumped in to save him and also got trapped in the current.

The two were swept downstream but eventually were pulled from the water by team members.

The woman was treated for minor injuries. The boy was hospitalized in Grand Forks. His condition wasn’t known, but WDAZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2a8oWkd ) he was breathing on his own.
