California Jeep Rescue: River Stranded Drivers Pulled to Safety


Share post:

Corning, CA – In what could have turned into a dire situation, a bold rescue unfolded along Thomes Creek near Corning, where two adventurers in Jeeps found themselves more than stuck in the mud. Attempting to cross the swiftly changing creek, their vehicles became completely stranded, leaving them no choice but to call for help.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) – Helicopter H-14 team, alongside CHP – Red Bluff personnel, Tehama County Fire, and CAL FIRE, orchestrated a daring helicopter hoist rescue on Wednesday. The crews skillfully maneuvered to lift the stranded drivers from the engulfing waters to the safety of the riverbank.

This incident serves as a powerful reminder of nature’s unpredictability, especially during the spring when melting snow can dramatically alter water flows. Authorities urge the public to heed the warning: when rivers rise, wise drivers think twice. Always prioritize safety and be prepared for sudden changes in water conditions to avoid getting stuck—or worse.
