Two children pulled from the Tippecanoe River, one sent to Riley

Two children were rescued from the Tippecanoe River Saturday morning.

Indiana Department of Natural Resource officers responded just before 11 a.m. after the Pulaski County dispatch center received a 911 call about two children, ages 1 and 5, in tjhe river.

By the time officers arrived family members had pulled the children from the water after hearing calls for help.

No reason was given as to how the children ended up in the water.

The children and two adults were transported to Pulaski Memorial Hospital for treatment. The Indiana DNR says that the 1-year-old was transported to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis in critical condition. 

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
