The Bernalillo County Fire Department is reminding recreationalists to use caution while enjoying the river this summer after a rafter got lost. 

South Valley crews responded to the river near I-25 overnight to reports of a lost rafter. With the help of APD Open Space and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office helicopter, the rafter was found just after 3 a.m. 

BCFD says it’s a reminder to use caution along the river, which is flowing at record highs.
