Canoeist OK after spill in Potomac

February 26, 2012

The occupant of a canoe that capsized in the Potomac River on Sunday afternoon was OK, a supervisor with Washington County Emergency Services said.

The man fell out of the canoe when it capsized near Lock 34, the 911 supervisor said. Lock 34 is near Harpers Ferry Road at the southern tip of Washington County.

Emergency-service officials initially got a call at 1:10 p.m. Sunday about a capsized canoe in the river near U.S. 340 and Sandy Hook, and a short while later discovered the occupant had fallen out farther north, a 911 supervisor said.
