The rescue was accomplished in about an hour, and no injuries were reported, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

You can lead a jack ass to water but you can't let him sink.

save the dogs. the two humans should know to get out of the river. how much did this cost the taxpayers. btw why the contra costa county symbol? maybe they will pay the bill.

You should use the Los Angeles Fire Department logo. Their swift water rescue team was the one that got the men and dogs out of the water. As I told a firefighter friend. "Be grateful for stupid people. They are job security."
