NISKAYUNA – Cleanup was underway on Merlin Drive in Niskayuna Wednesday evening, but not before flooded roads prompted a rescue.

A group of people were taken from a partially submerged minivan – including one person who was in a wheelchair.

The group was put into an inflatable boat.

The water receded a short time later.
