(Detroit Lakes, MN) -- Two teens are okay after they fell into a river and got pulled out by strong currents Thursday from a northwest Minnesota lake.
According to the Becker County Sheriff's Office, the pair got into trouble after they fell into the Pelican River just south of Detroit Lakes a little after 2:30 p.m. Both reportedly ended up about 100 yards from shore in frigid water.
Family and friends paddled out to pull them back to shore, where they were treated by paramedics and released.
