A family of 5 attempting to rescue my son from his pedal boat that was taking on water from the Androscoggin River was force to swim ashore in the cold water after their boat flipped during the rescue and sunk as well. We are starting this account in hopes that we can raise enough money for the Portillo family to replace their boat that was lost. Our dis-able son is always out on his boat fishing from morning til night. That's his one thing in life that brings him pleasure. We can not thank the Portillo family enough with saving our young man from a situation that could of had ended really bad. We are forever grateful for all that was there to assist with the help. . We are very lucky that their are still nice people out here in our world that doesn't think twice about helping another in their time of needs. From what we understand Mr. Portillo was out on the River taking his family for a nice boat ride when all this came about. Please help us help his family to replace the boat that was lost. If he was not there our son could of lost his life.
