According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue, on the afternoon of Thursday, July 12th, 2018, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue was activated after receiving information of several vehicles with 7 people who became stranded between two running washes where the water levels were continuing to rise.

They were located on Hwy 66 in Golden Valley near mile marker 41 at the Sacramento Wash. As rescuers arrived on scene, water levels began to recede.

Rescuers then crossed over the wash and escorted those who were stranded to safety. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue highly encourages the use of extreme caution around running water – TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!
