Oregon City Family Rescued From Colorado Spillway


A father and his two daughters narrowly escape disaster Thursday afternoon, as they floated into a swifter part of the Deschutes River and could not fight the current. Captain Corey Darling with Bend Police says just after 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon, Bend Fire is called out to the Colorado spillway for a water rescue. "A father and his two daughter got caught in the swifter portion of the river and were not able to get to the side of the river to get out and actually got caught at the spillway. Fortunately, they were able to grab on to the spillway before going through. The father and one of the daughters were able to get out. The other one was not able to and was holding on to the pillar until we got there." Darling says Barry Gregory, 55, Sarah Jo Gregory, 15, Molly Jo Gregory,6, all of Oregon City, were safely rescued; but apparently none of the victims wore a life jacket. The 15 year old was the victim who needed help getting off the spillway. The family was visiting the area and unfamiliar with the Deschutes River and the safe exits for the river.
