    AGENCIES WORK TOGETHER TO RESCUE DROWNING WOMAN

    Posted by: Sheriff's Office

    ​Today at about 4 p.m., deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call of a person screaming in the Willamette River. While boat crews from the Sheriff's Office and the Salem Fire Department were responding a Keizer Police Officer spotted the person and kept watch as they drifted down the river.

    Salem Fire Departments Boat 5 was first to arrive on scene and pulled an adult female from the water. The female was rushed from the water to a waiting ambulance at the Keizer Rapids Park. The female was extremely hypothermic and rushed to the Salem Hospital where she is being treated. The identity of the female and how she ended up in the water is unknown at this time, deputies do believe alcohol played a role.
