NEWS RELEASE 12/3/11: Portland Fire Boat Eldon Trinity rescues man from Willamette River in less than four minutes


December 3, 2011

7:26 PM

Marine units from three Portland Fire Stations responded this afternoon to rescue a man from the Willamette River. A standard multiple unit response from different locations: Station 21 (Lower East side), Station 1 (Old Town), and Station 6 (NW Industrial), ensures that patients are located and rescued in the least amount of time.

Rescue Boat 21, the Eldon Trinity, reached the patient less than 4 minutes after being dispatched. Time represents the difference between life and death in water rescues; frigid temperatures increase the risk of hypothermia, the air temperature at the time of the rescue was 34 degrees Fahrenheit. Two minutes later, rescue swimmers from Old Town Station 1, aboard personal watercraft modified for surface water rescue, arrived to provide additional support.

Firefighter Dean Krake explains, "The man was standing aboard a large float along the west side sea wall between the Portland Spirit and the Hawthorne Bridge-he admitted to jumping into the river but did not explain why." The Eldon Trinity maneuvered alongside the float and the man stepped directly aboard. Cross trained as Emergency Medical Technicians, firefighters aboard the Eldon Trinity initiated medical treatment for cold exposure without delay. The patient's wet clothing was removed and he was wrapped in dry blankets.

The Eldon Trinity transported the man to a dock beneath the Hawthorne Bridge and care was transferred to a Paramedic Unit for transport to Providence Hospital; the patient's condition was not life threatening.

It is still unclear why the man jumped, and no patient name is available at this time.

IT WORK 100%....I just got my Marriage fixed, I contacted a real spell caster that helped me change my husband’s heart to love and want me again, and he really did and now we are very happy together. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..

My name is CLARA JAMES .I want to give thanks to PRIEST WISDOM for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I  have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn't face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with PRIEST WISDOM.He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. PRIEST WISDOM makes him realize  how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counselling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life . contact email or text or add him up on whatsApp at: +2348124644470 his web page or go to his page

I can’t believe that with just a contact to Dr. Salem, I got my ex husband back. I had read some stuff about Manifest Temple before I contacted him but I didn’t know that all those stuff were so accurate until I got my husband back, After getting my ex husband back I taught it wise to share my testimony with everyone on this website that how Dr. Salem was able to get my husband back with his powerful reunion love spell. That rebuild my broken marriage. All my hope has been fully restored and am happy to share my experience to everyone. Do feel free to Contact Dr. Salem via email if having any challenge with marriage or relationship at: ( I so much believe he can also help out with his powers. WhatsApp +234 805 397 4975
