Five Kayakers Injured After Being Hit by Water Taxi in New York

Posted: Updated:

Ten kayakers are safe after a water taxi hit them on the Hudson River in New York.

Police say five people are hurt and at least one was taken to the hospital with a serious injury Tuesday evening.

The kayakers were on the river for a sunset paddle when a ferry leaving the terminal hit them.

After the accident, a number of kayaks were flipped up-side down on the busy river while rescue boats pulled people to safety.

Investigators are working to determine what exactly caused the crash.
