I'm not sure of where or from whom you received your information from but it is far from accurate.From a rescuer on scene ( who wants to appear nameless)
At approximately 12.15pm we were paged for a victim in the water, floating with no helmet or life vest. Apparently a private boat had flipped in number 5
north of buena vista. 3 other people did get to dry land. When there is a confirmed possible drowning in the river, all 3 agencies have assigned positions in the river
for a rescue, depending on where the report is. Chaffee County fire goes to Otero pump station, and railroad bridge put in, Buena vista Fire goes to the river park
on East Main street. Salida fire goes to there spot north of salida at stone bridge, and I believe AHRA goes to Ruby Mtn.
Todays call; Chaffee County fire missed the dead body at railroad bridge and they also missed at mt. harvard estates. We got the body out of the
water at the river park, deceased..
