SALEM -- Four members of a Dallas family are safe after they went into the water while kayaking on the North Santiam River on Saturday.

Two were able to make it to shore, but the father and son were stranded on rocks in the middle of the river, with swift currents on either side.

They were plucked from the river by a Salem-based Oregon Army National Guard helicopter Saturday evening.
