Crews Remove Houseboat From Dam

Crews spent most of Monday morning on the Kentucky River in Franklin County, working to free a boat, teetering on the edge of a dam

Workers anchored a barge near the stranded boat and used a crane-like attachment to pull it away from the dam.

The houseboat got stuck Sunday afternoon. Rescuers had to bring four people to safety.

The driver of the boat was quickly taken to the Franklin County Detention Center, charged with DUI.

No one was hurt.

    I only hope that the media will cover the complete story once it has become public. Unfortunately the drama and the bad guys are all we hear about. Where were the markers at this dam - apparently they washed away at the last flood. I hope all who were interested in the drama will also be interested in the truth.

    I see too many people running up and down the river drinking and driving at high speeds. I live right on the river off Big Eddy. Its not safe to go on the river

    Great job reporting on this story. He's not only handsome but Andy Cunningham tells a nice story and the footage was very dramatic. Don't boat and drink!
