Capital City Fire and Rescue firefighters responded to Mendenhall Lake to check out a pair of kayakers who apparently fell into the water on Tuesday afternoon.
They were in the water for at least a half-hour as family companions summoned Alaska Travel Adventures crews working on shore. They picked up the unidentified man and woman, took them to shore, and started rewarming them.
CCFR Assistant Chief Ed Quinto says they arrived to transport the cold, but otherwise uninjured couple to the hospital for evaluation.
