Even though it was only six feet deep, this unfortunate canoeist got trapped by the power of the
Jefferson River. She was pinned against a bridge in the frigid water for four and a half hours.

Thankfully, she had quick thinking partners and teams of emergency responders who rescued her.
Not that she was a Chaser, but, as others have cautioned, be prepared and respect the power of nature if you’re out there,
water high or not.
