2 Kayakers ( male and female) fell out of their Kayaks at Mendenhall Lake this afternoon. They were in the water 1/2 hour to an hour. Other family members that was with them that did not fall in the water were able to summon help from crews of Alaska Travel Adventures that were on the shore working. The ATA crewmembers went out and picked up the 2 people and brought them to the shore where they started rewarming them. Capital City Fire Rescue was called at 1333. We transported the 2 individuals to BRH for medical evaluation. They were not injuried, but cold.
