Rescue units responded to the Rockcastle River near 11137 Somerset Rd for a mutual aid request from Pongo Fire Department. The initial call was for over due kayakers. While en route Laurel Dispatch notified units that a female in the group was actively seizing. Rescue units deployed a boat with swift water technicians and went up stream approximately 2 miles and located the kayakers. Rescue units loaded the female into the boat and assisted the kayakers back to the 1956 bridge where the patient could be further evaluated by medical personnel.
