Three Juveniles in Need of Rescue during Float Trip

Posted: Updated:

A story from Cut Bank and that three teenagers were in need of rescue after a float trip on Cut Bank Creek did not go as planned.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection releasing a statement saying three unidentified juveniles started a float trip on Cut Bank Creek at approximately 5pm yesterday and expected to reach their destination in just a few hours.

At 1:30am the Border Offices in Shelby received a request for assistance from the Glacier County Sheriff's Office to help locate the three juveniles that were more than several hours overdue.  It was then at 3am that a FLIR thermal imaging camera located the three individuals along the creek and then a rescue was made by EMS, Border Protection, and the Glacier County Deputies.  The three were determined to be in good health and were returned to their parents.

Chief Patrol Agent Christopher Richards said that integrated efforts such as this are an example of how working together with our partners helps keep our communities, and residents, safe.

A person with Border Protection's Public Affairs said that the three either misjudged the time of the trip that was necessary or the current was slower than anticipated to trigger the search and rescue.
