Two females from Delta, ages 17 and 23, called for help after attempting to raft the Gunnison River on an air mattress. The women put in at Big O Tires and soon realized they needed help.

They were not wearing personal flotation devices and said they do not know how to swim. Until the high water recedes, the sheriff's office urges caution and the proper equipment for anyone entering the water. The fast-moving current is carrying a lot of debris which could be very dangerous.

Driver Keith Axtell, 24, of Eckert was transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital with an injury to his hand. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
