NEENAH, Wis. (AP) - Three people are safe after their pontoon boat was swept by the strong current on the Fox River into a dam in Neenah.

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department says it happened around 9 p.m. Monday when the three people aboard the boat tried to retrieve a dinghy that was stuck in a safety cable near the dam near the Oak Street Bridge.

One person was able to use the safety cable to pull himself to safety. Two others were pulled through the dam but made it to shore with only minor injuries.

The pontoon sustained serious damage.
