AFR Crews Rescue Two People from Arroyos in Albuquerque

Saved by the Jacket

Albuquerque Fire Rescue used swift water rescue tactics to save two people swept away in arroyos on Saturday. Initial reports from AFR said three people were caught up in the currents and two had been rescued, however, the latest report now shows firefighters believe only two were ever actually swept away and both were rescued. One person was pulled out of the North Diversion Channel, and the second was rescued from a different arroyo. Both were treated for hypothermia, exhaustion, as well as bumps and bruises, but are otherwise expected to be OK.
