BAKER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - The Georgia State Patrol helicopter and Department of Natural Resources Officers were called out to rescue two Poulan girls stranded along the Flint River in Baker County.
A Mitchell County Sheriff's deputy noticed an abandoned vehicle at the boat ramp near the county line and after asking around learned it belonged to two women who put an inflatable raft in the river.
The 17 and 25 year old drifted down stream several miles when they realized they couldn't paddle up steam as they intended. DNR law enforcement encourages those who want to take advantage of the rive to have a plan before they set out.
"Probably the first thing is that you want to know where you're going and that somebody know where you are going to be at in case you don't return we can find out where to start looking for you at. You need to make sure the water conditions are right and that you have the proper equipment to make the voyage that you're going to make," said DNR-Law Enforcement Sgt. Ellis Wynn.
When the helicopter couldn't find the women, DNR boats were sent out both north and south along the river. They women were found just after midnight, about two miles south of the boat landing dehydrated and mosquito bitten.
