    Was it the boyfriend who is lost? I hope they find safe whoever got swept downriver.

    Anyone who SWIMS in a river is totally dumb.You wade in a river and wear a life jacket while doing so! The closest thing to swiming in a river,is hiking in bear country covered with berry juice! You look good,and feel good until you don’t !! and it shouldn’t come as a surprise!
