Rafters Fall Into Provo River

A kayaker spotted the two as they fell from their raft, near the Canyon Glen picnic area. They were wearing life jackets.

The men were finally able to swim to shore all the way downstream at the Murdock Canal Diversion Dam.

Authorities say the river is running so high no one should try to float it unless they have a high level of skill.
