WATCH: Two Army Corps Engineers Rescued By Helicopter From Lock And Dam 13

BARLING, Ark. -- Two dam operators from the Army Corps of Engineers were stuck at Lock and Dam 13 in Barling on the Sebastian County side.

The lock and dam was surrounded by rapidly increasing levels of water and the two couldn't get out of the building they were in.

They made their way to the roof and waited for rescue.

A national guard medical helicopter was sent to Lock and Dam 13 from Camp Robinson in Little Rock to rescue the operators.

No one was injured.

The operators were assessing and working at the dam at the time.
