Three people are safe after a kayak trip down the Susquehanna River almost turned deadly.

Six fire agencies including Ouaquaga, Harpursville, and Windsor Fire Departments responded to a stranded kayaker just before 6:00 Sunday evening.

Acuaga fire officials say one kayaker was found stranded holding onto a log right below the Acuaga Bridge in Windsor while two other kayakers were attempting to get help

It took crews about 25 minutes to rescue the stranded kayaker.
No one was injured.

Officials do advise those planning to kayak to always wear a life vest and never kayak alone.
