Water Rescue

A big scare for a couple of Glen Street kids this afternoon as they took a little unintentional float down the Mettowee River. Rescuers on hand saved the day, but scary stuff nonetheless. Seems some of the kid’s friends called 911 and got first responders on the scene right away. A good thing too, that river was moving and moving fast. Russ Bronson and Rodger Hurley, not small guys got really wet getting the kids to safety. Russ was underwater at one point with the normally slow-flowing Mettowee really cruising through that narrow section down stream of the Main Street Bridge and upstream of the Little League.

 

Garrett Riggs

 Good luck buddy. He’s moving on from the SVM and moving out west to Oregon, the land of good mircobrewed beer and lots of other fun stuff. The left coast is a lot of fun and culturally diverse – I, for one, am hoping Garrett and his wife get set up quickly – and are into houseguests from ‘back east’

Here’s hoping any care packages from the educator came with fine west coasts suds enclosed.
