Binghamton Fire Department Drowning Incident Video Clip

This YouTube video is the actual and edited film clip taken by news reporters which shows two Firefighters drown and 5 who almost drown while attempting to recover a PFD from the face of a low-head dam. This footage was taken the day after a child drowned when his raft overturned in the swollen river and a Police Officer drowned when his boat overturned during the search for that child. This video is a classic example why an Incident Commander must distinguish between Rescue and Recovery and the need to conduct a Risk:Benefit Analysis prior to committing personnel and equipment in any type of emergency operation.
