Kayakers pulled under La Crosse Queen dock

First responders: no one seriously injured

Two Kayakers are safe after being swept under the La Crosse Queen’s dock Saturday afternoon. 

A group of kayakers were out on the La Crosse River headed into the Mississippi River when currents pulled two of them under the dock by the La Crosse Queen. One kayaker was pulled as far as 120 feet underwater.

The captain of the queen pulled one of the kayakers to safety, and the other was able to swim to shore. Responders on scene say no one was seriously injured.
