Man Rescued From Genesee River
by News

Rochester firefighters say they train for something like this all the time and early Friday morning, it paid off.

Around 1 a.m. Friday, a Rochester police officer spoke with two young men who said they heard a man trapped on a pile of logs floating on the Genesee River near E. Main St.

Rescuers say the water in the river was 37 degrees.

Firefighters arrived at the scene and lowered a harness, secured the man and brought him up.

In all, the rescue effort took place in less than an hour.

Police say the circumstances leading up to the man falling into the river are unknown.

The man is being evaluated by a medical team and police will continue to investigate the situation.
