Near Drowning

On Saturday, while out in my boat, I heard a blood curdling scream on the upper Niagara river. I looked to see a young guy drifting downriver towards the peace bridge. He grabbed the side of the pier and was in quite a bad spot. He was trying to swim up river and it was making his situation worse. After instructing him to let go and come around the back side of the pier, he eventually got out safely.

Every year, the first internet or instagram report of a trout or two sends newcomers to water they aren't familiar with. Water levels are up, be careful.

Are there warning signs at the pathways to the river ? Many people are visitors and don't know how treacherous this river is .....slippery rocks , changing water levels and super fast currents ! Some anglers take too many chances also . A few signs warning people of these dangers would help to "some" degree .....
