First responders rescued a kayaker Friday evening who was stranded on the Haw River near Pittsboro.

A group of four were kayaking Friday afternoon, but recent rain caused water conditions to be rougher than they were expecting.

Three kayakers made it to shore safely, but one became stranded on a group of rocks.

The South Orange Rescue Squad and first responders from the North Chatham Fire Department helped rescue the remaining kayaker, who was not injured.
