Deputies in Oregon pull out 57 electric scooters and bikes out of the Portland river

A sheriff’s office in Oregon recently disclosed it hauled dozens of electric scooters and bicycles out of a major river in Portland. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday on Twitter the department’s dive team recovered a total of 57 scooters and bikes over a two-day period in the Willamette River in Portland.

The dive team used the scooter recovery as a training exercise since the river bottom has limited visibility so everything has to be found by touch. As scooter popularity has exploded in recent years, so have environmental concerns over the electric batteries impacting marine life.
