Police, fire and ambulance personnel in Tarrytown, New York, teamed up to rescue a woman from a frigid Hudson River on Wednesday, January 13, bodycam footage released by the Tarrytown Police Department shows.
The video shows police officers responding to calls that an unidentified female had jumped into the Hudson River near the River Walk area shortly after 10:15 am.
When officers arrived, they found the woman struggling in the water approximately 20 feet from the shoreline.
Officers first made several attempts to rescue the woman using a water rescue disc “but were met with extreme difficulty due to the terrain conditions”.
Two Tarrytown police officers and a Tarrytown firefighter then jumped into the frigid water to secure the woman in a harness before pulling her to safety.
The woman was transported to the Westchester Medical Center while the three water rescuers were taken to Phelps Hospital for evaluation. Credit: Tarrytown Police Department via Storyful
