[ARCHIVED] Man Rescued from Snake River

water rescueIdaho Falls, ID: At approximately 3:58 p.m on Jan. 3, 2018, the Idaho Falls Fire Department, Idaho Falls Police Department and Bonneville County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to 455 River Parkway for a report of a male who had fallen in the Snake River. 

The adult male of unknown age was able to call 911 from his cell phone and guide rescuers to his location across from the Snow Eagle on River Parkway. 

Rescuers had a challenging time locating the victim initially as he was up against the riverbank. Once located, rescuers were able to quickly pull him out of the water and get him to an ambulance. He was in the water for approximately 15 minutes from the initial call to dispatch. 

The victim was transported by ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.  

It is not know at this time how he got in the river. 

No other information is available at this time. 

We would like to remind the public to use extreme caution around the river and to stay a safe distance from the riverbanks as they are extremely icy.
