Rescue swimmers and medics from the Corvallis Fire Department (CFD) carried out a successful water rescue near the Marys River Park in Philomath on February 20. The incident began with a 9-1-1 call that came in shortly after 3:30 p.m. with a report of people in the water requesting assistance. Philomath Fire & Rescue, along with local law enforcement, were first on the scene. First responders located two individuals in the water and began working their way through heavy brush to gain access. At this point, Philomath Fire requested rescue swimmers and additional support from Corvallis Fire. CFD personnel deployed their portable raft and three rescue swimmers, who then traveled upstream to retrieve one victim and one dog from the river.
