McCURTAIN COUNTY, Okla. — Rescue crews worked to successfully save 13 people from a cabin on Mountain Fork River.

Ten adults and three children were reportedly trapped in a two-story cabin on the Mountain Fork River southeast of Broken Bow.

Authorities say fire and rescue personnel made two attempts to get to the house, but were unable to because of swift waters.

Water levels are continuing to rise, but officials say the crews went back to get an air boat and try again.

All 13 people were rescued by boat, and there are no reports of injuries.

Broken Bow Fire and Rescue, U.S. Forest Service, OK Dept of Wildlife, and McCurtain County Emergency Management all assisted with the rescue.
