Whitewater Rafters Rescued 7/11/2011
The Chelan County sheriff’s swift-water rescue team rescued two Seattle rafters from a logjam in the Wenatchee River about a half-mile upstream of Plain on Saturday evening.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Ken Zimmerman said the couple were riding in a rubber raft when the vessel became lodged on a root ball about 50 to 60 yards from shore near Bretz Drive.

The couple, Louis Grothaus, 62, and Kathleen Saunders, 58, scrambled onto a log to await rescue. The couple, who were wearing life jackets, were not hurt.

The incident was reported at about 6 p.m. Crews used another rubber raft to transport the couple to shore by about 8:15 p.m.

Just over one week ago 69 year old Sharon Huges of Manson, drowned after getting trapped under a log jam during a guided rafting on the Wenatchee River.
