Two men were rescued today on the Green River in Flaming Geyser State Park after their rafts hit a snag of logs and flipped over, according to the Kent Fire Department.

Both men climbed onto nearby logs but could not reach the shore. A third man safely made it to the riverbank on his own.

Rescue personnel waded into the water about 4 p.m. and pulled the men to shore. Neither were injured.
