A man in his 30's has been rescued after falling 15 feet into a river in Ross on Wye, in the early hours of this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to The Biblins in Whitchurch just after 1.10 am where they found the man in the water.
The rescue operation took crews around two hours as there were concerns about his injuries, due to the area he had fallen in being quite rocky.
He was treated for suspected fractures to his wrist and ankle as well as a pelvis injury.
Crews launched a boat further upstream and made their way down to the patient before getting him on board and travelling back upstream.
The man was then carried up a steep bank before being transport to Hereford County Hospital.

West Mercia and Warwickshire police are warning people to be extra vigilant with incidents of cyber crime on the rise across the Midlands.
They are launching as new awareness campaign urging people to better protect themselves when they share personal details online.
Identity theft cost the country more than £3 billion last year.
"Identity theft is the UK's fastest-growing method used to carry out criminal activity. Once a criminal has got hold of your personal details they can use them to commit identity crime, such as fraud.
"The internet provides numerous opportunities for fraudsters to harvest the personal data of unsuspecting members of the public and they don't even have to leave the comfort of their own homes.
"While the vast majority of people know what measures to take to stay safe in the real world, by keeping their cars and homes locked for example, some are not as well versed on what they should do to protect themselves in cyber space.
"This phase of our #Be Cyber Smart campaign seeks to highlight the simple and yet effective steps people living and working across Warwickshire and West Mercia can take to help them avoid falling victim."
