"It's possible that choppy water, those conditions, led to some water getting inside the kayak," said Mike Parker, with the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission.

Both were in 54-degree water with lifejackets on for about 50 minutes. They were taken to WellSpan York Hospital and were in stable condition.
