While riding yesterday I came upon a situation where a child had fallen into the river and the mother jumped in to try and save him but could not swim herself. The child was saved by a bystander. There was a guy in the water trying frantically to locate the mother and miraculously he came up with her. They were on the opposite side of the shore and I ran to get across and helped pull her out of thw water and up onto the steep embankment where I immediately started CPR. It did not look good from the moment I first saw her but I gave everything I had until the paramedics arrived and took over. They rushed her to the hospital where they pronounced her dead. It was a very sad situation.
