New hovercraft can be used for water and snow rescues

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Emergency management officials in Marion and Hamilton counties say a new hovercraft will help with rescues on water, snow and ice.

A grant from the Department of Homeland Security will pay for the $60,000 craft, which was bought from a Terre Haute-based company.

Marion County Emergency Management spokeswoman Debbie Fletcher says the six-passenger hovercraft will also help with emergencies in dams, where rescue boats often get stuck in the water's current.

Training on the hovercraft is expected to begin next month.
