Two men are lucky to be alive after their canoe capsized in the Columbia River near Rainer late Tuesday night. Apparently they were not wearing life jackets, a police report states. When rescue unit arrived, the pair had been in the chilly water for almost two hours. Columbia County Sheriff Jeff Dickerson says the men wouldn't have survived much longer in the water. They were semi-conscious when they were found.
