It helps to have caring people looking on…

Boy swept away downstream – rescued by people who happened to be there…


Today around 3:00 p.m., 4 strangers leapt into action after a 4 year old boy was swept down river at the North Fork County Park reaction area in east Marion County. The boy who was standing with his father and siblings next to the water’s edge, ended up in the river after his father looked away for only a few moments. The water quickly took the boy from the upper pool through the rapids and into the lower pool.

That’s when two men Jason McDade and Christian Lozano jumped into action pulling the boy from the water. On the beach a certified nursing assistant Kelda Klukis and a registered nurse Maryela Lozano began CPR the boy’s lifeless body. When paramedics arrived the boy was again breathing and he was transported to Santiam Hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery. The child was not wearing a life vest at the time of the accident.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all of our visitors and residents that recreating in open water can be dangerous so please wear a life vest, especially in or around moving water. We would also like to thank all of the rescuers who worked together to save a young boys life.
