Technical Rescue Naugatuck River Bank and E. Liberty Sts 10/12/17

Passerbyes hearing a woman crying for help Brought Waterbury Fire to the scene of a technical rescue. I appeared a though a woman possibly under the influence fell off the Metro North Train Tressel about 40 feet into the shallow water and rocks below sustaining life threatening injuries and possible hypothermia. Companies used a ground ladder, ropes, a stokes basket and all hands to reach the woman, package, and extract her from the river bed so that AMR medics could transport her to St Mary's Hosp.
