An unidentified woman was rescued from the Poudre River yesterday just after noon about ¼ mile east of Overland Trail and the Poudre River in northwest Fort Collins. Poudre Fire Authority, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, LCSO Emergency Services, Larimer County Dive Rescue Team and Poudre Valley Hospital Emergency Services all assisted in the rescue.

When crews arrived, rescue swimmers were sent into the water as one person from the rafting group was helping hold the female’s head above water. The woman was trapped in what’s called a “strainer,” which blocks the passage of larger objects but allows water through. The woman was one of a group who were using inner tubes to float the river.

Once the female was safely out of the river she was evaluated on scene and transported by ambulance to Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins.
