The Kings River—on a calmer day.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office just released a video of a dangerous recovery they recently completed: After a red Hyundai Sonata and its two occupants fell 500 feet into the raging, Class V Kings River, search-and-rescue crews mounted a precarious mission to pull the vehicle out. They found signs of another missing couple who may have driven off the same stretch of road.
