Patrol Officers responded to multiple 911 calls from concerned citizens to report that they can hear female voices yelling for help and splashing in the river.

The investigation has determined that a female had fallen in the water and the other attempted to help her out but panicked when she began to be pulled into the water by her friend. 

Officers entered the water and rescued both females who were taken to the hospital by ambulance to be medically cleared.

Both have since been released from the hospital.

Alcohol consumption is believed to have been a contributing factor in this incident.
