A 41-year-old woman was pulled from James River Tuesday afternoon, according to the Jamestown Police Department.
The incident began at about 1:25 p.m. when police officers were dispatched to South Central Human Service Center for a client who said she intended to jump in the river and harm herself. The woman jumped into the river and began to swim downstream and officers tried to talk her into getting out of the water.
The Jamestown Fire Department was paged out and put a boat in the water to assist.
When the woman reached the east side of Klaus Park, an unidentified law enforcement officer dove into the water and pulled the woman to shore. She was taken into custody and released to mental health personnel.
No injuries were reported.
Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office deputies and the Jamestown Fire Department Rescue Squad assisted with the rescue.
The incident remains under investigation.
