THUNDER BAY – NEWS – Thunder Bay Fire Rescue responded to a water rescue at the Neebing – McIntyre Floodway at approximately 2:00 PM EDT on Saturday.

Platoon Chief Harold Spithoff says that a person had fallen in and were not able to get themselves out.

Two pumpers and a boat were dispatched. Fire Rescue noted that once they had arrived, they saw that the person had become entangled in bull rushes and mud.

Firefighters located the individual in the weeds near the shore and almost under the surface. Firefighters wearing immersion suits and life jackets entered the water and pulled her onto the shore where she was attended to by paramedics.

People are asked to be careful along the floodway shoreline, it can become slippery after the light rain we have been having.
