SCARBOROUGH — A woman whose kayak overturned in the Scarborough River this afternoon was rescued after she called for help using her cell phone.

A dispatcher said the woman’s kayak got caught up in a strong current at around 4:30 p.m. and got pinned against a support for the train trestle used by the Amtrak Downeaster. The current flipped the kayak, but the woman clung to the bridge and used her cell phone to call rescuers.

The woman, whose name was not immediately available, hung on to the support for about 15 minutes until fire crews in two rescue boats reached her.

She sustained no injuries and was released at the scene.
