A person was rescued from the river in York early this morning (Sunday).
Police called out York Rescue Boat at 1.32am. They were concerned for the safety of an individual close to the River Foss.
In a statement on Facebook, York Rescue Boat said: “During the incident the person entered the water.
“Two of our swiftwater rescue technicians who were on standby quickly deployed into the water and rescued the person before they were handed over to the care of police.”
Earlier on Saturday evening the team had to deal with another incident.
“No sooner had our crews arrived in York for our routine preventative search and rescue patrols this evening than a male jumped into the river off the balcony of one of the riverside bars.
“Please don’t do that. The river is very shallow at that point and this chap was lucky to get away with cuts and bruises and a word with our friends at North Yorkshire Police.
“If he’d have been unlucky he’d have been looking at serious leg or spinal injuries.”
