E721’s crew arrived on the scene with Battalion Chief Campbell. Assuming command Bat7 instructed E721’s crew to clear a path for L721 to respond, also requesting additional swift water gear to the scene by E751’s crew. Crews reported the Victim was approx. 50' from the shoreline in a wash with fast-moving water from the active rainstorm. Additionally, he was approximately another 50' upstream from the highway bridge drainage tunnels on a small patch of dirt holding on to a small bush. Additional units arrived on the scene, which included M731 and 705. M731’s crew was given swift water gear and throw bags, and bat7 instructed them to go downstream for the duration of the incident.
