Campers Rescued When Flash Flood Inundates Campground

OZARK, Ark. -- A popular off-roading event has not been canceled after flood waters sparked a seven-hour search and rescue operation Thursday night into Friday morning.

The Mulberry River near Byrd's Outdoor Adventure in Franklin County rose more than 10 feet Thursday night, forcing the evacuation of more than 200 campers.

Over 20 people couldn't escape and found shelter on the roof of an outhouse, and a multi-agency rescue operation turned even more chaotic when three rescue personnel were swept into the river's strong currents.
