2 Boaters Clinging To Rock In Rapid Waters Saved During NYSP Under Water Recovery Team Training

Talk about the right place at the right time!!! Members of the NYSP Under Water Recovery Team and New York State Fire members from all over the state were training in the Sacandaga River in Hadley, NY today. Just as they were wrapping up the training they were informed of an inflatable vessel in trouble. A brave civilian Devin Robarge was an excellent guide, and the first to swim out to help the people in trouble. Together they all rescued two boaters clinging to a rock in rapid waters and transported them to safety. Everyone on the boat has been accounted for and is safe. Well done!!!
