Nancy Rigg, founder of the Higgins and Langley Awards for swiftwater rescue, writes, "I could NOT believe that after a mere hour, they were calling off the search - with NO plans for any follow-up search or recovery effort or anything - when my fiancé, Earl Higgins, was swept down the flood-swollen Los Angeles River, after trying to rescue a child who had fallen into the water.
