NEW MARKET, Md. (AP) — Officials say a stranded kayaker was lifted by helicopter from Lake Linganore after his boat was overcome by high water.

New Market fire officials say it happened about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Authorities say the man was stranded on a flooded strip of land in a narrow part of the lake. A state police helicopter hoisted the man out of the water.

Officials say a woman who was also in the kayak was able to get to shore and call police.
