Rescue workers in Grand Rapids were called out to a report of two people in trouble in the Grand River near the Sixth St Dam.

Witnesses say a man and woman had been kayaking near the dam when they either went over the dam or were caught in the rush of water below.

Both the man and woman were knocked out of their kayaks and were rescued a short time afterward.
