    Authorities say four kayakers in Maine whose boats had capsized were rescued by a marine resource officer.

    Officer Dave Corbeau was taking water samples from his boat on the Nonesuch River in Scarborough on Monday when he noticed two kayakers struggling against the current.

    Their boat was being pushed toward a railroad trestle, with several large pilings underneath.

    The Portland Press Herald reports
    that after one of the kayaks overturned and got pinned against a piling, Corbeau pulled both people into his boat. He then discovered that there were two more kayakers.

    Jaime Higgins, with the Scarborough Police Department, says Corbeau pushed the kayakers away from the trestle with a long pole, causing them to continue upriver. None of them were injured.
