Man Rescued After Jumping in Boise River
The Boise River is borderline raging.
That being said, it's probably not a good idea to go for a swim in it.
On Sunday, a young man in Star had to be rescued from the river by the Eagle, Boise, and Star fire departments. The Eagle Fire Department tweeted:
[The young man] decided to to jump in the water and swim around. That nearly cost him his life! Stay out of the water!
The Boise River is currently flowing at almost 9,000 cubic feet per second, and steadily rising to dangerous levels. The all-time record for the river's flow is just under 10,000 cfs. All local authorities are imploring citizens not to attempt to enter the river, and also use extra caution with pets near the river.
Anyone who is rescued from the Boise River will have to incur the cost of said rescue.
