HERKIMER COUNTY- Just after 6 p.m. on Saturday, crews were dispatched to a creek near the KOA campgrounds in Herkimer.

Officials were searching for a young girl who was on a tube in the creek. According to our camera crews, those who were called to help, got the girl out of the water around 8 p.m.

No word on her condition or whether she was a local girl or visiting from somewhere.

We are very limited on information but have reached out to state police. We are still waiting to hear back.
