Two Hardin County men were killed in a weekend canoe accident on the Iowa River. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says three men in their 20s were walking the canoe near the dam at Alden when the vessel was pulled into the turbulent waters on Sunday night about six o’clock. Two of the men died.
A third person was able to swim to safety and was taken to an Iowa Falls hospital. Authorities say none of the three had been wearing life jackets.
