OROFINO, ID - The Clearwater County Sheriff's Office received a call just before 9:00 p.m. Friday advising that two individuals had ran a boat aground in middle of the Clearwater River. Deputies responded to the scene and located the boat grounded on a rock bar near Hidden Village and Black Rock Drive. Due to weather, location, and river conditions the boat was unreachable. Two Bear Air was called out of Flathead County, Montana to assist. At about midnight, Two Bear Air arrived on scene and landed a helicopter next to the boat, and were able fly the pair to safety. There were no injures. The boat will be recovered sometime Saturday by Riverview Marina of Lewiston.
