EDMONTON - Rescuers needed a police helicopter spotlight and thermal imaging sensors to find a semi-conscious and hypothermic woman who had become trapped between two logs after falling down an Edmonton river bank.
More than two dozen emergency personnel combined in the Monday night darkness to help save the young woman, who was found along the edge of the North Saskatchewan River.
Police say she had been with group at a fire pit in a central-area park when she wandered away.
It was two hours before her friends noticed she was missing and called for help.
A fire department technical rescue team worked with paramedics to pull the woman up the riverbank using a basket stretcher.
She was taken to hospital for an assessment, but police say she won't have any lasting injuries.
