SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — Authorities rescued two people and a dog from Lake Pend Oreille after their canoe capsized. Bonner County Sheriff’s Lt. Ror Lakewold says a third person managed to swim to shore while the two others clung to U.S. Highway 95 bridge pilings.

Lakewold says a cyclist saw or heard the boaters Sunday afternoon and called police. Authorities say high winds caused the canoe to capsize. The boaters, who were not identified, were wearing life jackets. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports they were checked for hypothermia at a hospital and later released.
