NASHUA — An unidentified woman was rescued by Nashua first responders and was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after falling into the Nashua River Tuesday afternoon, according to fire officials.

The call for assistance first came at 3:04 p.m. on the report that a woman had fallen into the river at 2 Court St., near the rear of the Nashua Public Library.

The Nashua Police Department and Nashua Fire Rescue responded to the scene.

By the time first responders arrived, the woman had gotten out of the water on her own, but officials said she was stuck down on an embankment.

Officials said it looked as if the woman had slid down the embankment into the water.

A firefighter lowered himself down by rope and put a harness on the woman, and she was hauled up the embankment, according to Nashua Deputy Fire Chief Glen J. MacDonald.

The woman was brought to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for treatment and no further information on her condition was available, officials said.
