WFPS makes Red River rescue after person is swept away
WFPS crews had to make a water rescue Tuesday evening when a person was swept away into the Red River.
The rescuers safely brought the person – who was about 7.5 metres from shore – to dry land, at which point paramedics brought them to hospital in unstable condition.
WFPS said they were unsure who long the person had been in the water or how they came to be there.
