Tuber trapped in river's high waters

Jun 27 2012

Port Alberni RCMP are warning the public of high and fast water on the Stamp River this long weekend after a young woman was pinned under a log while tubing.

"We anticipate bus-loads of people coming up that are going to be engaging in a variety of water activities, including tubing," said Port Alberni Cpl. Jen Allan. "We are hoping that in light of this incident, individuals will be cautious when engaging in these types of activities. The water is running really high and really fast and presents a danger."

Four experienced tubers wearing life-jackets were thrown into the rapids just below Stamp Falls on Monday. One of the women was trapped under a log, Allan said.

The others swam to shore.

Allan said the tuber managed to pull herself out and swam to a sandbar. She had mild hypothermia and taken to the West Coast General Hospital for examination, police said.

Police are warning the public to be cautious ahead of the long weekend.

"Even capable, experienced tubers and swimmers outfitted with the appropriate safety gear can find themselves in dangerous and life-threatening situations," Allan said. ceharnett@timescolonist.com
