Kayaker swam to rocks after overturning

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A kayaker who didn't know exactly what she was doing had to be rescued from the James Tuesday.

Just after two o'clock Tuesday afternoon fire officials say the victim overturned...and felt it was safer to swim to a rock rather than return to her kayak.

The fire department came out and rescued her. She had a cut on her foot, but otherwise unharmed.
