Father And Son Rescued From Mississippi

A father and son were rescued from the Mississippi River on Saturday afternoon after they became stranded on some islands. Authorities in Stearns County received an emergency report from someone on the 300 block of Montrose Road in St. Cloud, reporting there was a man on an island in the Mississippi who was asking for help as his boat had gotten away from him and drifted down river. The St. Cloud Fire Department were dispatched to the scene along with their boat, but a short time later police received a call from the man's son, who was also on the island, and was reporting his dad had gone into the water in an attempt to retrieve their boat. His dad, however, went too far down the river and the son couldn't see him or the boat. In the end, the father was found on another island, with both brought back to sure uninjured by St. Cloud Fire Department.
