ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Four fishermen are safe after a rescue Friday night on the Mississippi River near the Chain of Rocks Bridge.

The fishermen were stranded after the motor on their boat died and the
current took the boat into the rocks.  The boat was damaged and began taking on
water.

St. Louis City firefighters were called to the scene.  They couldn’t reach
the fishermen with their boat.  They sent in a firefighter on a smaller
inflatable craft, who helped bring the fishermen to safety.
