1 person Injured Following 5 Separate Water Rescues over the Weekend

Saved by the Jacket

The first was located above the Byington Boat Ramp on the Snake River, east of Ririe, where a jet boat was stuck on rocks at a diversion. Another boat was able to help three juveniles off while deputies were responding, but then had a mechanical issue and couldn’t get back to get a final adult passenger. Deputies arrived a short time later and retrieved the final passenger from the boat, which by then was partially submerged in the middle of the river. Deputies also assisted in getting the boat unstuck and pulled to the bank where it could be retrieved from the water. There were no injuries in this incident and all of the occupants were wearing life jackets
