INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis firefighters brought out heavy equipment Friday morning to pull a vehicle from a canal in Broad Ripple.

The Indianapolis Fire Department was called around 5:30 a.m. to the 300 block of East Westfield Boulevard near Washington Street and found a 3-wheeled Slingshot motorcycle in the water.

Two people inside the vehicle were taken to the hospital and reported to be stable, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Public Information Officer Samone Burris told News 8.
