Five people and a dog were had to be rescued from the Colorado River Wednesday night, after their raft hit a tree and flipped near Corn Lake.

Three of the boaters made it to the banks and called for help, because two others and the dog floated further down.

They were all found safe and were reunited.

Sheriff's office says the outcome could have been much worse - only one person was wearing a life jacket.
