HOLLISTER — Search and rescue crews and emergency responders from four counties were called to a reported drowning near Grey’s Landing at the Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir late Friday night. But the person was found alive the next morning by local anglers.
The Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office said it responded along with its search and rescue team, Air St. Luke’s, the Bingham County Sheriff’s Office, the Minidoka County Sheriff’s Office and the Cassia County Sheriff’s Office.
Dive operations were set up to find the drowning victim, but were obviously unsuccessful.
“We would encourage those spending time on the water recreating to remember that alcohol and boating aren’t a good combination, and the wearing of life jackets increases your chances of survival,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. “The victim in this case was very lucky they survived.”
The store will be open 24/7, 365 days a year. Shoppers will be able to come inside the store or use a drive-through option, he said. A range of products will be available including vapes, concentrate and edibles.
Dr. Jim Souza, chief physician executive for St. Luke's, said about 80% of the hospital system's employees are already vaccinated against COVID-19. And hospital officials are having conversations with those who have reservations.
