Accident on Eagle River???

I saw the Vail Mountain Rescue guys with all their swiftwater rescue gear, ambulances and firetrucks with lights on coming to the area on the Eagle near the Reserve. (This is near Edwards on Hwy 6 near the section locals call the Edwards Mile). Does anyone have anymore information about what happened?

I just got off that section about 1/2 an hour ago and didn't see anything.

Lots of hole-hopping since the water's down, but nothing extraordinary.

Do you have any specifics?

That's when we were on but I didn't see anything. Maybe they were fishing a cat out of a tree. I actually swam a stupid section today, so maybe the rescue work should have been for me.

Pappas - I've never been on the Animas so I'd be stoked, but I'm in Aspen w/ work. Don't swim - it's for choads.

Not much information to add other than to confirm that Vail S&R was called on a river incident in the Edwards Mile section. I was paddling Gore Cr. with a S&R member and when we took out @ 1pm his beeper indicated that S&R was called in around noon.
