Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District Assistant Chief Dave Manning stands next to an Ohio Department of Natural Resources vehicle along Cave Road while rescue personnel tried to figure out late Thursday afternoon how to reach two kayakers stranded in the Rocky Fork Creek Gorge in the former Seven Caves area. Manning said a call originally came in reporting that two kayakers had flipped over and one of them was missing. But he said on the scene shortly before 6 p.m. that both kayakers had been located and were OK. He said rescue personnel were trying to figure out how to reach them in the creek with tall cliffs on each side. The fire district’s grain bin rescue team was called to the scene. Scanner traffic at 7 p.m. said all victims were out of the water.
