Dixie Belle pulled from Kentucky River

A popular riverboat has been pulled safely from the Kentucky River.

The Dixie Belle floated several miles down the river and over a lock after breaking free from Shaker Village.

The boat will sit on a trailer until a U.S. Coast Guard inspection early next week.

The boat will travel over land and will then be put back into the water.

Officials with Shaker Village say they hope to have it back at Shaker Landing as soon as possible.
