Man, boy hospitalized after river rescue

By The Associated Press
SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) A man and a boy were hospitalized after a scare in the Chattahoochee River. <br /> <br /> Rescue crews were called to the river around 7:30 p.m. Sunday to search for the two. They had gone in the river near the Atlanta Road Bridge in Cobb County, just northwest of Atlanta, to swim and tube. <br /> <br /> WSB-TV reports that a swift water rescue team pulled the man from the river and performed CPR. He was taken to Emory Adventist Hospital in Smyrna. <br /> <br /> Rescuers located the boy downriver with another group of people. <br /> <br /> Authorities said he was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite as a precaution because he had ingested a lot of river water. <br />
