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.
