The rescue operation began around 5 p.m., catching the attention of many as it was broadcast live. Officials report the woman was first spotted near Whitsett Avenue in less than knee-deep water traveling around 15 miles per hour. Firefighters initially attempted to rescue the woman by throwing her a flotation device, but the strong currents pulled her further downstream. Despite the challenges, a ladder was deployed, which she managed to cling to before being swept away again.
