CHARLES CITY – Two Charles City men survived a trip over a dam Saturday evening on the Cedar River.

A pontoon boat being operated by Ryan Fisher, 25, lost power and floated over the dam at approximately 8 p.m. Saturday. Fisher and an unidentified passenger were rescued uninjured from a bridge pillar downstream by the Charles City Fire Department. Neither was wearing a life jacket and the boat had not yet been recovered Saturday evening.

The incident is still under investigation by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
