From our Inbox last night:

Any idea whats going on in Puyallup on the river right now? They have a very low flying ‘copter and boats with search lights buzzing up and down the river behind the Safeway on Main St right now and have been at it for an hour or so…They’re looking hard for someone!

Puyallup police Lt. Dave McDonald explained what the action was all about:

Central Pierce Fire and Rescue was doing some swift water rescue training that involved a helicopter, near the Mama Stortini’s restaurant.
