A Redmond man is alive today, thanks to the Swift Water Rescue Team from Deschutes County Search and Rescue.


Duncan Girard, 38, was floating on the Deschutes River around 2:50 p.m., in an inner tube when he fell off, getting wedged between 2 rocks near Grubstake Way in the Odin Falls Subdivision in Redmond Friday afternoon.


Battalion Chief Jon Wood with Redmond Fire and Rescue says Girard was tubing with Rroy Monroe, 48, also of Redmond, who was able to call 911 to report the fall.


When Redmond Fire and Rescue Paramedics and the Deschutes County Sheriff Rescue Teams responded, they found Girard barely keeping his head above water; he actually went under water several times.


Rescuers were able to attach a harness to Girard and pull him to the riverbank.  Girard suffered minor injuries.


He said the strong undercurrent kept pushing his legs under the big rocks, but he was able to stand on his toes to keep his head above water.


Authorities say alcohol is not a factor in this incident.
