KALAMAZOO TWP, Mich. — A unconscious man was rescued from the Kalamazoo River Monday morning after being spotted by canoers.

Kalamazoo Township Fire Marshall Todd Kowalski said the man was found wrapped around a tree in the water near Kings Highway and the I-94 business loop.

Two canoers found him and called dispatch around 10:45 a.m.

Emergency crews went to the river’s edge with a stretcher and were able to get him out.

The man was taken to the hospital. Fire officials don’t know why he was there in the first place.
