It was a scary moment on the Deschutes River in Bend as a mom and her two young kids went thru the spillway. Dan Derlacki with the Bend Fire Department says the local family of three was floating the river and failed to navigate it correctly and get out of the water at Colorado. "And they ended up going into the spillway. A couple ended up getting out of the water on their own, and one we had to go get off the rocks." Derlacki says the spillway is very dangerous place to be in, and they see this happen about once a month. He says the river was especially busy Wednesday with hundreds of people floating it, thanks to the warmer weather.
