RCMP rescued two boaters long overdue from a paddling trip on Wolf River near Teslin last week.
The two men were stranded after their canoe was swept away in the rapids.
An aerial search of the river located the pair 20 kilometres from Teslin on a portage trail near the river.
They had spent two nights camping on the shore of the river, when they signaled the RCMP Twin Otter for rescue on Thursday.
Officers dispatched a helicopter from Whitehorse and retrieved the men without incident.
Search and rescue workers from Teslin helped out.
Fortunately the canoeists filed an itinerary with a local canoe rental company before setting out.
The RCMP is taking this opportunity to remind boaters and fishers to prepare and take precautions before going out on a wilderness expedition. (LC)
