Rescue officials respond in W.Va.



SANDY HOOK, W.Va. - Rescue officials were called to the Potomac River Monday afternoon for a possible river rescue.

A short time after they arrived, rescue officials learned that the two men and a woman - who were reportedly having trouble in the water - got out of the river safely on the West Virginia side, said Arnold Martin, deputy chief of the Potomac Valley Volunteer Fire Co.

Martin said the group had a 20-foot wooden boat. What happened to the couple along the Potomac couldn't be ascertained by officials, he added.

Additional details were not available from authorities.

Rescue officials were called to the river about 5:34 p.m. and responded to an area just north of Sandy Hook.
