Emergency crews in Rockbridge County brought a family to safety late Sunday night.

A mother and her two daughters got in trouble while kayaking near Balcony Falls.

Emergency Management Coordinator Robert Foresman says the three were stranded on the opposite side of the river.

Swift water rescue boats hit the water and helped those people get to safety.
