throw rope hazard?

Yesterday when we were paddling someone in the group behind us needed a rescue. I was down stream but all I know is that the rope came loose and went down river. We all searched but no one could find it. Is this going to pose a hazard now for future river runs? I've never heard of this happening before, although I'm sure this is not the first time.

Ropes have killed. Your groups loss is not the first and wont be the last. It's always important to search thoroughly for it.

If you post where this happened others can be aware of the hazard and keep an eye out for it. River? approx. location? when?

It happened on the Similkameen River, BC, not likely anyone you know will be out this way.
The only hopeful thing is that it is still really high water so it will get flushed way downstream. Now I'm going to be paranoid when I go out next.
