    I saw an ambulance speeding up to the McCoy’s put in. I wonder if it was for one of the hundreds of rafters there today…

    Sure would like to know <img loading=” title=”Confused” />

    When we were leaving the put in, we saw an air ambulance and when we got back to River Run, someone had heard that it was a beginner kayaker with a neck injury.
    But that’s just what we heard.

    i was told by a friend who was paddling at mccoys at the time that a girl ended up going into leftside upside down and hitting her head and badly hurting her neck,, and he said he and others helped her to shore and she was air lifted to the hospital,, the choppper landed right near the bottom of mccoys

    the video boaters were saying that she looked like she was concussed. She had flipped over, had some trashing movements and then nothing. A person then came and attempted a hand of god, and got her up on her second try near the looser channel at the bottom of football. Pretty scary stuff, imagine if she was solo, i often see swimmers without a buddy have to self rescue.
