A young woman and her two small children were rafting down the Lehigh River when the raft was punctured. The trio ended up on the rocks under the Chestnut Street bridge in Coplay. The mother yelled for help over an hour until a fisherman on the eastern shore line heard the cries for help.
At 17:45, Coplay Fire #5 and Cetronia EMS were dispatched for the water rescue. Once on scene, they requested the dive team and marine units from Whitehall and Northampton.
A paramedic from Cetronia went out into the water and grabbed the 3. A member from Whitehall's Dive unit went out and brought the two children to safety before the marine units were launched. All 3 were brought to safety without injury.
