SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — A lost kayaker was safely located from the Chipuxet River Sunday evening in South Kingstown, according to authorities.

Rescue teams were dispatched to the river just before 8 p.m. for reports of an injured kayaker in the water.

Emergency responders were able to track the 17-year-old girl by using the signal from her cell phone and remained on the line until they located her.

The girl was lost in a heavily-dense and swampy area of the river, according to police.

A drone was used to guide her to a safer area where rescuers were staged along the South County Bicycle Path.

“Teamwork and technology were key to locating this lost kayaker in a timely manner,” South Kingstown Police Chief Matthew Moynihan said.

The kayaker was a bit shaken from the experience but found in good health and refused medical treatment.
