Accident Description

 Aapparently a 14 year old female guest of a commercial raft customer nearly died yesterday at Sockemdog. The level was 1.75 at the bridge gauge late in the afternoon. The story I heard was she was under in the hole for 2 min, came out not breathing and unconscious. It took a couple of rescue breaths and a compression to revive here.

After the accident some people thought there might be a log or something in there after the recent flooding. This afternoon when I went past Sockemdog NOC was in there with a raft on a telfer lower, fishing for it. They found nothing.
