COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus Fire Chief Ricky Shores tells News 3 a 17-year-old girl has been rescued from rocks along the Chattahoochee River Thursday afternoon.
The rescue happened close to where boats are put into the water for a river rescue training drill.

The teen was not wearing a proper flotation device when she got stuck, but she is expected to be okay.
Shores urges all visitors to the river to use caution.
