Yesterday I heard from “Kathie Saunders” whose sister was rescued from the mighty Mississippi River. It’s not every often you hear from someone that was involved in an incident– and I consider that an amazing day when I do.
“When I was a small girl my mother had put my youngest sister in the carriage and put her outside. Well I thought I would take her for a walk and where we lived at the time there was rolling hills. Down at the bottom was the river just over from the falls. Well I went up one hill and the carriage got away from me and it went into the water.
The merchants down in the village called Fire Dept. and I remember that there were people there flashing their cameras and people had read it in the paper.”
