A woman was rescued from the Allegheny River along Colbert Avenue in the Siverly neighborhood of Oil City shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday.
“We have a female, for which we are unsure why, walked into the river,” Oil City police Chief Bob Wenner said. “She was recovered in the water.”
Stephen Udick, who made the 911 call, was fishing in the area at the time of the incident. As he was walking back to his vehicle, he heard screaming.
Oil City police were assisted by the Oil City Fire Department.
“She appears to be OK right now,” Wenner said. “We’re in the process of making a determination of her motive for doing such a reckless thing.”
