Individuals and colleagues made every effort on Saturday afternoon to save the life of a friend who almost drowned as they were rafting on the Kamenice River. The man went under after their raft flipped in whitewater; he had to be pulled to shore where colleagues began resuscitation. Although they were able to restore his breathing, the rafter remained unconscious and had to be transported through difficult terrain to nearby train tracks where he was first taken by rail, then ambulance and finally by helicopter to hospital where he remains in intensive care.
