07/01/09 76 W, 1 I - + 15 - 10 River Rescue in Des Moines

There are stunning photos, and there are stunning photos. Des Moines Register photographer Andrea Meledez took this award-winner yesterday, as a construction worker hanging from a crane rescued a woman from the Des Moines River. Fire department rescue teams had already tried, but couldn't get close enough. The woman's male companion drowned, and was found further downstream. Read the story and see additional photos.
