Double-duty for fire/rescue crews on Columbia River

A busy day on the river for Regional Fire and Rescue in Trail Monday.

Deputy Chief Dan Derby says they had to launch their boat after one of two boys playing on the old bridge fell over 20-feet onto the rocky bank.

He didn’t actually go in the water.

Derby says the boy was responsive and talking when he was taken to hospital.

Later the department was called out again, this time to a false alarm about a body in the river.

Turns out someone passing by was looking at one of the buoys near Teck.
