As we ran towards the scream, we realized that it sounded more and more like Brad. Finally, after running as fast as we could, we discovered Brad was holding onto a branch near the violent river. Understanding Brad was inches from a definite death, Colin and I pounced into action by carefully going over to him and assisting him up. Unfortunately, the mud was slick around him and it was impossible to get to Brad without one of us falling into the river with him. Suddenly, we saw men with flashlights coming towards yelling "Stay there" and "Help is on the way." Somehow when we turned around to tell Brad everything was ok, he was gone again. He was washed down the raging river with no sight or sound of his voice. What were supposed to do next?
