RAY COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

Authorities in Ray County, MO were forced into the water Tuesday evening after an intoxicated minor fell out of a kayak.

At about 7:30 p.m. Ray County Sheriff's Office Deputies responded to the Fishing River near Missouri-210 Highway after the intoxicated minor overturned a kayak and could not escape the water.

A deputy and a volunteer firefighter with the Orrick Fire Department entered the water and were able to determine that the minor was overly intoxicated and unable to climb the bank due to his level of intoxication. The minor was pulled from the river.

The Ray County Sheriff's Office urges all who enjoy to get out on the river to think twice before becoming intoxicated on the water. They say the dangers of drowning substantially increases after becoming intoxicated on an unstable vessel such as a kayak.
