Emergency crews in Olathe rescued two adults and a baby from a vehicle early Friday morning at Lake Olathe.

The Olathe Fire Department reported to the scene at 12:45 a.m. on Friday. The department said a man, woman and their 2-year-old child, who were traveling across a low water bridge below the lake's dam, became stranded in a powerful current. 

The Olathe Fire Department said firefighters used a ladder truck to reach the family and bring them to safety. After the rescue, firefighters gave the family a ride to their home, according to a news release from the department. The Olathe Police Department and Med-Act also helped at the scene. 

No one was injured, according to the Olathe Fire Department.
