OGDENSBURG — Four Canadian boaters were rescued after their boat was caught in waves on the St. Lawrence River.

John Gibson, Mark Stoddart, Jim Earle and Brady Whitmore, all of Ontario, lost control of their boat Saturday afternoon and were tossed around the cabin.

Ogdensburg Police, Ogdensburg Rescue and Ogdensburg Fire were dispatched at 2:48 p.m., and towed the boat to shore.

Mr. Gibson, 52, was taken to Claxton Hepburn Medical Center for treatment of injuries to his face.

He has since been released.
