Four adults and a dog were rescued from the Nisqually River on Sunday after their drift boat flipped, according to a battalion chief with Lacey Fire District 3.
Lacey Fire District 3, Nisqually police and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office dive team were dispatched to the river about 1:20 p.m. Sunday. Four adults and a dog had been riding in a drift boat when it hit a logjam and overturned, Battalion Chief Patrick Harn said.
One man, thought to be in his 40s, was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital with a minor injury and possible hypothermia, he said. The other adults were treated at the scene and released. The dog was OK, too, Harn said.
