A family of eight was rescued Saturday after their raft hit a pillar at the Parkcenter Bridge along the Boise River at about 7:40 p.m.
No one was injured, Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan said.
"Fortunately, (the kids) involved in the river rescue tonight were wearing life vests," Doan wrote in a tweet.
The river is running high, at about 1,480 cubic feet per second. That also means the water is colder than normal during float season, he said.
Doan urged floaters to be careful around the Parkcenter Bridge pillars. The current is pushing rafts into them.
