AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Four boaters are safe after emergency crews worked to keep them from going over Longhorn Dam Thursday afternoon.

First responders were called to the scene near Pleasant Valley Road just after 2:30 p.m. Thursday. 911 callers reported a boat with people on board about to go over the dam.

At one point, the bow of the boat was floating over the top of the dam. ATCEMS and STAR Flight worked to lower life vests to the four occupants of the boat.

Eventually, crews were able to tow the boat back to open water and pull all four occupants to safety.

According to ATCEMS, no injuries were reported.
