KYBURZ, Calif. (AP) - A kayaker is being credited with helping to save a family of five after their SUV had veered off a road and ended up in the American River.
Sacramento television station KCRA (http://nbcnews.to/12ykU9j ) reports the Livermore family was driving along Highway 50 near the Sierra Nevada community of Kyburz Thursday afternoon when their SUV veered off the road, hit a concrete mile marker, a large tree, a boulder and then went into the river.
The station says a kayaker on the river was able to get three children out of the SUV and get them to the side of the river.
When the kayaker went back to the SUV he found the driver with his head partly underwater and the man's wife helping to hold his head up. When firefighters arrived they were able to stabilize the driver and get him and his wife out of the vehicle.
