RED­DING (AP) — Au­thor­i­ties in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia res­cued a Colorado woman and her dog who had been paddleboarding on a lake but ac­ci­den­tally ended up on the Sacra­mento River and couldn’t han­dle the cur­rent.

The Shasta County Sher­iff’s Of­fice says 58-year-old Frankie Gro­gan was on Ku­tras Lake in Red­ding on Wed­nes­day on a pad­dle­board with her dog when she un­know­ingly en­tered the river’s main chan­nel.

By the time she re­al­ized her mis­take she was al­ready strug­gling in the strong cur­rent. Gro­gan man­aged to get to an is­land in the mid­dle of the river and waved at a car on a nearby road to call for help.

Res­cuers from sev­eral agen­cies quickly found her and the dog. They weren’t hurt.

Gro­gan was cited for not wear­ing a life-vest. Her dog was wear­ing one.
