(PITTSBURG) - Indiana conversation officers are warning of fast-moving waters after they rescued two people whose boat capsized on the Wabash River.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says officers responded to a call Sunday afternoon of two people thrown into the water upstream of the Pittsburg Ramps on the Wabash River. Officers were able to reach the two after a Carroll County Sheriff's deputy and Delphi City police officer were unable to make it to them.

The two were on a 14-foot jon boat. The occupants were 32-year-old Mark Greene of Flora and 25-year-old Alicia Tyvand of Monticello.

Conservation officers say currents on Indiana rivers are strong due to recent rains. They warn boaters to use boats that are large enough for high water levels.
