We turn now to a pair of dangerous rafting accidents. Take a look at this scene in Pennsylvania. This raft sucked into a waterfall after ignoring signs to turn back. A second group of rafters rescued in Georgia. Here's Stephanie Ramos with a warning on the water. Reporter: Tonight, a group of rafters are safe after these terrifying moments on a river in ohiopyle state park in Pennsylvania. Caller reporting a raft went over the falls. At least six people fell into the water. Reporter: Watch as the group's raft heads directly toward the waterfall then flips over, tossing all six people into the water. The group escaping with minor scrapes and bruises. A park official says they were on a rented raft, missed a turn, and passed several other signs warning them not to proceed. When they heard people also warning them, it was too late. The river water was moving too fast. All six of them had their life jackets on. So when they went over the falls, that was probably the thing that saved them and that's why they're with us today. Reporter: Around the same time Saturday in Georgia, first responders rescued a man and a group of ten children from treacherous rapids. This group also on their own, without a guide.
