Swimming Problems

Posted on 30th July 2010 at 08:17

Longview Police and fire crews responded to the Cowlitz River, across from the Three Rivers Golf Course in Kelso, after it was reported that a group of swimmers might be in trouble. A resident of one of the condos across from the golf course called 911 at about 4:40 yesterday afternoon, reporting that a group of three teens was trying to swim across the river, and at least one was having trouble in the water. The caller reported that one seemed to be stranded in the middle of the river, but by the time police and firefighters arrived, all three teens were on the Longview side of the river, along with a dog. It was confirmed that all three weren’t hurt or in distress, then Longview Police helped get the trio and their dog back to the Kelso side of the river.
