TOWN OF LINN (WITI) — Officials with the Town of Linn Fire Department say kayakers had to be rescued on Monday, April 7th in Lake Geneva after two kayaks overturned.

Fire officials say three kayaks were out on the lake when two of them overturned — forcing the kayakers to climb up onto the ice that was still on the lake.

Fire officials were able to get the kayakers with their airboat, and they were taken to safety.

Neither of the kayakers that went into the water were injured.

The third kayaker was able to return to shore safely without the assistance of fire officials.
