Aaron is trying to get this woman free... finally he has her but she in not breathing. i am about 6 feet away in the current just staying put, we agreed to let her float down to me.. he was in real fast water, so he lets go and she sinks, he grabs her 1 more time gets her head out of the water and pushes her to me. now this woman is a dead stick her lungs were full of water and she wasnt breathing, i grab her put my arm under her chest and as i'm heading to shore i am pumping water out of this woman. she is still out when i get her to a safe spot, about 2 feet of water i put her head on my chest and repeated "come on lady breath" like 4 or 5 times. she started throwing up water, she is breathing, i allmost died just trying to catch my breath, as well did aaron. we got her put her in a boat that was going by a spanish family that couldnt even speak english but they saw what had just happened. we get this woman to "big rock" around 8ish she took are phone numbers and names... this was a day i will never forget... janet i'm glad you are here to see another day...
