HOLYOKE (WGGB) — Rescue crews pulled a woman from the Connecticut River late Saturday night.

Holyoke Fire Lt. Tom Paquin said  the woman was rescued shortly after fire crews responded to the scene just before 11:00 p.m.

Lt. Paquin said Jennifer Rivera fell in by the Dinosaur Tracks in Holyoke and was spotted floating down the river.

They have not determined how the woman fell in, but said a South Hadley rescue boat was waiting to take her to an ambulance for treatment, after being pulled from the water with temperatures below 30 degrees.

The woman was taken to Holyoke Hospital where she was reported to be in good condition.
