Three kids ages 8, 10 and 16 were thrown from a canoe into the fast flowing Salmon Creek near Vancouver, Washington Wednesday afternoon.  Two members of a work crew from the Larch Corrections Facility jumped into the river to help the kids.  Fire District 6 Chief Jerry Green says their swift water rescue team helped all five get to shore; they were all taken to hospitals for evaluation.  The kids were wearing life vests, but green says considering the volume of water in the river right now, only experienced boaters should be in the river.
