People safe after being thrown from raft

Two local people are safe after being thrown from a raft in the Ohio River. The Coast Guard says a recreational boat was pulling the people on the raft when the driver tried to make a turn in the "Bear Trap." That’s the area where the dam funnels water from the river.

The Coast Guard says the people were wearing life jackets and were not hurt in the incident.

The Coast Guard says the dam was put up just hours before the accident happened.
