Family rescued from boat on Kentucky River

By The Staff

A family of four was rescued from the Kentucky River on Thursday night after their boat got stuck on top of the dam at Lock 5.

Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes said the event was one of the most nerve-racking he has witnessed.

“It was a complicated rescue,” Barnes said.

The Farley family was boating on the river, but was unfamiliar with that particular section, Barnes said.

“[The father] was not familiar with that pool of the river and he didn’t realize there was a dam there,” Barnes said.
