An officer and dog are being hailed as heroes after pulling a woman from the Nechako River.
Prince George RCMP say the call came in around 10:30 this morning when a woman was seen in the river near the Cameron Street Bridge.
Two off duty 9-1-1 operators were walking along the Heritage River Trail and called officials to provide updates as to where the female was.
Within a few shorts minutes of the original call, police and other emergency services began arriving in the area and set up at various points along the river.
A civilian also provided assistance with a boat.
Police say Constable Cole Ebling then ran into the fast moving water and began making his way towards the woman.
While this was happening, an off-duty officer sent his personal dog into the water to grab the female.
The dog grabbed the female and began pulling her towards the officer. Constable Ebling then grabbed the female and pulled her back to shore.
The woman is currently in hospital and expected to survive.
Mounties are thanking everyone that assisted in the investigation.
It’s estimated the river was around 3 or 4°C.
