KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A fishing trip turned into quite an ordeal Monday afternoon for a driver in Charleston.

Joe Hodge was putting a boat in the Kanawha River at Daniel Boone Park. During the process, his truck and trailer rolled into the water.

Emergency crews had to be called to the scene to help pull them out.

Hodge told a WSAZ.com crew that he recently had brain surgery to remove a tumor, so things could have been worse.
