A daring rescue of two Parks Police officers from the Niagara River was completed early Sunday morning when their abandoned boat was pulled out of the water.

An Army National Guard Chinook helicopter was called in on Sunday to lift the stranded vessel.

The two police officers were pulled to safety on Saturday after getting lost on the river in dense fog, but left the boat behind. The helicopter pilot says pulling the vessel out was a bit tricky due to the strong currents but it was a successful mission
