ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Four people in kayaks have been rescued from the Catawba River near Rock Hill.

Fire Department Battalion Chief Trey Hovis says four people riding in three kayaks called emergency officials about 8 p.m. Monday reporting they were in distress.

Hovis says two women were on the riverbank on one side of the river and two men had beached their kayak on the other side of the river.

Hovis says the people on the kayaks had no lights and firefighters got to them through voice contact.

The firefighters and Carolina Dive and Rescue helped the kayakers safely to shore. Hovis says no one was hurt.
