HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT)- Hoover firefighters rescued five teens after their raft overturned in the Cahaba River Thursday evening.

Executive Officer Rusty Lowe tells us a neighbor heard the teens calling for help around the 1500 block of Fairway View Drive in Riverchase at 5 p.m.

Rescue crews were able to reach them behind Hoover High School.

The water is higher and the current is swift from all the recent rain.

None of the teens were wearing life vests, but luckily everyone is OK.
