The Yakima Fire Department Water Rescue team was called into action on Thursday to rescue a woman on a kayak in the Yakima River. Fire officials say
the woman who was not injured, lost her paddle, making her trek down the river impossible. The river flow pushed her to the far shore where she was advised to wait for the arrival of Yakima fire crews. The female was rescued, assisted from the river and transported to her partner that was waiting for her down river at the area they had planned to get out of the water.
