First responders have rescued a kayaker from the Big Sioux River in eastern South Dakota.

The Minnehaha County emergency manager says the kayaker became stuck in trees east of Sioux Falls on Sunday.

A second kayaker was able to make it to land. No one was hurt.

Officials are reminding people not to kayak on the river when it's in flood stage.
