A Redmond mom is very grateful for the people who rescued her and her two children after they went over the Colorado Dam Spillway earlier this week. Erin Bell-Taylor who talked with our news partner, News Channel 21, says it happened so fast. “I had these plastic oars and i broke out because i was paddling so hard. No matter what I did, I could not venture to the left. If my baby didn't have a life vest on, she’d be dead.”   The mom and kids jumped out of the raft when they saw they were going to go over the spillway. The mom was able to hang on to the bridge, but the kids went tumbling through the rocks. Luckily, an off duty Sunriver Firefighter was nearby and jumped in and saved them.
