Thanks to the quick thinking of the crew members of the Tallship 'Lady Washington' who helped alert people sleeping in their moored boats downstream that the second barge was headed their way narrowly missing and crushing a sleeping family that had been awakend and helped secure lines to loose docks in danger of letting loose and causing damage.They were all around 'Hero's' that evening!!! We are proud of you! Thanks again for your quick thinking in such an emergency! Kelly Gempler and Family (Witnesses) Boise, ID
