Just after 10:30 this morning, police were called to the foot of Riverside Drive and Caron Avenue.

Police say that witnesses fishing at the river observed what they thought was a group of ducks in the water approximately 30 feet from shore.  It was determined that it was actually a man in the water.

The man was being pushed by the current in a Westward direction and a  life-preserver was thrown to the person by citizens but the length of the rope was too short.

When police arrived they retrieved a life-preserver from the trunk of the police vehicle and threw the life-preserver to the man in the water.

The 44-year-old man was pulled safely from the water and was transported to hospital for assessment.
