Boats from German Township and Mad River Township were deployed upstream while Springfield personnel used throw ropes to reach the victims, three women and one man. The victims were removed to the boats and then drifted downstream, where they were brought to land. No one was injured in the incident

According to the post, high rains have caused rivers to flow faster than normal, and the victims were using inner tubes unsuitable for the state of the river. None of the victims were wearing proper personal flotation devices
