Update: Water Rescue on Boardman River Canceled; Man Found Safe

A happy ending in Grand Traverse County after crews responded to a water emergency on the Boardman River.

Around 4:45 Tuesday afternoon, a kayaker was in the water near the Lone Pine Trailhead.

Crews say the water levels are very high and fast this year, making it hard for people to get out of the water.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office has already responded to nine other water rescue calls this month with four of those in this area.

The man is safe and OK.

The department wants to remind people of the dangers of the high river levels.
