Woman rescued from River Severn

A woman has been taken to hospital after she was found in the River Severn this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the scene near Worcestershire County Cricket Club's New Road Ground.

“We understand two passers-by spotted the woman in the river and went into the water beyond their own depth to get her out. It appeared she had stopped breathing, but life-support treatment given at the scene by the ambulance and fire service led to her breathing again and, in a poorly condition, she was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.”
