This sounds terrifying, and I’m glad that everyone is safe. That said, while I prefer to avoid victim-blaming, what did you expect from going to a restaurant frequented by the likes of Cris Collinsworth?
Firefighters rigged a precarious gangplank of ladders and ropes over the flooded Ohio River and safely rescued 83 people, including former Cincinnati Bengals star Cris Collinsworth, from a floating restaurant that broke free from a pier, authorities say.
Covington Fire Department Capt. Chris Kiely said Jeff Ruby’s Waterfront restaurant drifted about 85 to 100 yards down the fast, rain-swollen river during the late Friday evening dinner hour and the popular seafood eatery then came to a stop beside a tall bridge as skittish dinner patrons looked on.
Everyone knows that the Precinct is better, anyway.
