Twin Falls Search and Rescue Help with Body Recovery at the Drops
The Drops are located in Shoshone, Idaho and the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue posted on social media about the body recovery and the dangers of swimming in the swift waters of the canal at the Little Drops Recreation Area:
The Drops are known as a place for locals to have fun, but that doesn’t mean the area is safe. We’ve written about the Drops and how to get there and received many messages from readers about the dangers of the area and telling people where it is. We recognize that it can be unsafe and that those who do go to the Drops should wear life jackets and familiarize themselves with where to get in and out of the canal. The Drops are part of the Milner Gooding Canal and the area at the end of the Drops, where visitors should get out of the water, is called the Little Drops Recreation Area.
If you do go to the Drops, please make sure you play safe and smart. Don’t go alone and always wear a life jacket. This story includes details on how to get there and where to get out safely.
