Coast Guard officials say they rescued five people in two separate incidents near Alexandria Bay in the past 24 hours, as of Saturday afternoon.
Around 2:30 Saturday afternoon, a Coast Guard boat crew came across four people clinging to a capsized personal watercraft in the St. Lawrence River near Alex Bay. There were no injuries reported.
Friday, the Coast Guard says a swimmer who was too tired to get back to shore signaled distress to a Coast Guard boat. The boat crew pulled the Canadian swimmer out of the water and returned him to the Canadian shoreline.
