Wolfeboro Water Rescue

Wolfeboro’s Fire-Rescue and Police Departments, and Stewart’s Ambulance Service, responded to a bridge construction site on Pleasant Valley Road yesterday after a report of a motor vehicle accident. Someone involved in the accident was injured and had gone into the water, although authorities haven’t identified if they were the driver or a passenger in the vehicle. Wolfeboro’s Fire-Rescue Department pulled the patient out of the water with cold water rescue suits, ladders, webbing, and a backboard, before stabilizing them. The process reportedly took 12 minutes to pull the patient from the water after the Fire-Rescue Personnel arrived. The patient was flown to Portland for medical treatment. Authorities say the incident remains under investigation.
