(Meredith) -- Four people are safe thanks to first responders who rescued them as their boat was going over a dam.

Callers reported the dangerous situation at Austin's Longhorn Dam Thursday afternoon in Austin, Texas.

Life vests were lowered to the people on the boat as the ship was attached to another vessel to keep it from going over.

A police patrol boat was then able to pull the passengers and their vessel into open water.
