Salt Lake valley firefighters swift water training

With six drownings on Utah rivers in the past two weeks, swift water training is more crucial than ever. Check out my cool video package of rescue training on the strong currents at Murray Park on Little Cottonwood Creek.

As a mobile journalist, here is my print story 
for the Salt Lake Tribune and also a video I shot and edited in the same morning seen above.

I also talk to and get reaction from Murray City residents about water safety and why they take their kids to swimming lessons.

Caught on video: As the family was walking away from the interview, the littlest girl held back and watched the roaring creek in awe. Her mom turned around to see her and took the opportunity to teach her why she needs to stay away from fast water.
