Three Owatonna men and one Red Wing woman are rescued after they became stranded on the Cannon River in Rice County.

Authorities responded to the scene near 175th Street in Cannon City Township just before noon on Saturday.

Police say river currents pulled 24–year–old Aubreona Hanson's kayak into a downed tree and the three men tried to rescue her.

Hanson was taken by ambulance and later air-lifted to another hospital, where she was reported to be in serious but stable condition.

The three men from Owatonna were not injured.
