Swift water rescue team called after boat capsizes

Posted: Updated:
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -

A swift water rescue team was called into action after some boaters ended up in the Chattahoochee River on Thursday.

Two men were anchored in a small aluminum boat when another boat's wake capsized, sending the men into the water.

One man swam ashore, but was worried about his friend and called 911.

The other man was found about a quarter-mile down the river.

Crews removed the boat from the river and neither man was hurt.
