Pigeon River • LaGrange, IN

An Auburn woman was treated for hypothermia after getting separated form her kayaking group on the Pigeon River in LaGrange County.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources say that 26-year-old Sasha Berry was kayaking with people on the Pigeon River near County Road 1200 East when her kayak struck a log.

Witnesses say that she became separated from the group and because of the strong current, which made the group unable to get back together.

Berry’s group waited at the next bridge downstream but Berry never arrived. 911 was called and Conservation officers and the Angola Fire Department arrived to the river and put air boats in the water to look for Berry.

After a brief search, Berry was located standing in waist deep water next to her kayak. She was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital where she was treated and released for hypothermia.
