Glacier Employees Rescue Flathead River Kayaker

By Beacon Staff

Flathead County officials say Glacier National Park employees used a boat to rescue a woman who fell out of her kayak on the Flathead River.

Brian Heino of the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office says the woman in her 30s was able to get to shore Friday afternoon but not up the bank.

Heino says he’s not sure where the boat came from because park employees don’t normally have one.

He says the woman was cold but not injured.
