3 rescued from river, possible drowning in another

RADIUM – Grand County sheriff’s deputies and search and rescue teams have responded to the report of a possible drowning in the Colorado River near Radium.

Authorities say people reported that a man in the area was unresponsive Thursday afternoon. Other information wasn’t immediately available.

In western Colorado, two adults and an infant were rescued Thursday from a rock on the Dolores River after being stranded there for nearly four hours.

Mesa County sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Benjamin tells The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction that the three lost their raft. Benjamin says inexperienced rafters should stay off the rivers, which are running high as record snowpack is starting to melt.
