Do we know if the large tree that formed the strainer at Widdowmaker was formed previous to the 11 year old boy being thrown from the boat yesterday afternoon or was it after? From my memory, river right would be a difficult place to search this rapid by foot.
Might be a good idea to have someone at the Browns put-ins asking rafters to be on the look out for the boy.
P.S. I was involved with the search yesterday. Our prayers are with the parents of the lost boy.
