A rescue from the Salinas riverbed early this morning in Paso Robles.
Paso Robles Emergency Services received a call from the riverbed around 2:00 this morning. Police officers responded, but could not locate the individual. The caller kept losing communication with dispatchers.
Around 4:30, they got another call, and located the individual, but he or she was on an island surrounded by rapid-moving water. So the police requested assistance from the North County Water Rescue Team.
The individual was successfully rescued at 6:15 this morning, and transported to an area hospital for treatment.
The investigation continues.
Thanks to Anthony Reed for that report.
