A party of 7 was tubing down the Little River in Moscow and 4 got hung up on a strainer after a turn in the brook. 3 made it to shore and were with a parent upon SMR arrival. 2 women & 2 children were found on top of a large strainer/debris pile and could not gain access to the shore, but were in a stable position.
A rescuer approached the stranded subjects from the downstream side of the debris pile and gained access to the subjects.
Life jackets were proved to the subjects, 2 throw bag lines were establish along an egress path (hand rails for the boat operator) through the debris pile. A small inflatable boat with stern & bow line and rescuer was then ferried to the subjects and evacuated in 2 trips. Nobody was injured in the incident.
