Deep River rescue

Crews have rescued a mother and her son from the Deep River near Moncure.

Officials say the two people fell into the water after some sort of vessel capsized. They were carried downstream around 9 p.m. Monday evening.

It happened near U.S. Highway 1 and the Deep River Bridge near the Lee County line near Moncure.

They were stranded on an island on a large rock in the river until rescuers could reach them.

The woman's husband was nearby during the rescue.

No one was injured.
