Emergency responders with STARS air ambulance were called into action this afternoon to rescue two canoeists from the Red River.

STARS was dispatched to the St. Adolphe area for a search and rescue mission at about 12:30 p.m. CT.

Two people were in a canoe on the Red River when it tipped over. Emergency responders helped two people, including a teen boy, out of the river.

The STARS medical crew transported the second canoeist, a man in his 60s, to hospital because of medical complications from being immersed in cold water.
