Missing canoeist rescued from River Towy

A canoeist who was reported missing and overturned in the River Towy has now been rescued by the fire service.

Two men were canoeing together in the river between Rhandirmwyn and Cilycwm. One got out safely and reported his colleague missing at 12.56. He was found and retrieved from the water just before 1.30 this afternoon.

The air ambulance arrived, but Mid and West Wales Fire Service says the two men are in 'good health.'
