Four Ohio rescue personnel were dumped into the Great Miami River on Tuesday when their boat flipped.
The incident was caught on video by a WPCO helicopter crew observing the search for a missing youth.
"There was a scramble to get the rescuers out of the water and get the boat back on shore," Harrison Fire Chief William Hursong told reporters.
None of the personnel was injured.
But, the incident slowed down the search and forced crew members to retrieve some lost diving equipment.
"It turned bad there for a second, but thankfully there was a positive outcome," Hursong said.
