VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Three people, including a child, have been rescued from the Mojave River after they became stuck in rising water released from a treatment plant.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports the trio were on an island in San Bernardino County Friday when they suddenly found themselves in high water.

The Victor Valley Water Reclamation Authority had released the water, but decreased the rate so that a search-and-rescue team could locate the two adults and child.

There were no injuries, but fire officials warned people to be careful when walking into rivers because the water can unexpectedly rise.
