Two people rescued in the Oswego River

OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — On the evening of June 5, the City of Oswego Fire Department rescued two people from the Oswego River.

A little while after 6 p.m. the fire department received an alert from 911 of two people possibly being trapped in the Oswego River, near Leto Island.

It was reported that the two people were fishing near the Varick Dam
when they became trapped due to the quick rising water levels and increasing
currents of the river.

In a quick response effort by the City of Oswego Fire Department and the Oswego Police, they attempted to rescue the pair through a shore-based rescue with throw bags.

Oswego firefighters were able to make their way across the upriver with an inflatable rescue
vessel and assist the two people into the boat and safely return the two back to shore.
