Children rescued from water in Coudersport

From Coudersport Vol. Fire Dept.
Yet another day of agencies working together. I would like to take this time and thank the Coudersport Volunteer Ambulance, Medic 6 personnel, Coudersport Boro Police, and the Pennsylvania State Police, and of course our members from Coudersport fire.
A young man was pulled from the cold/raging channel at the Main Street bridge after Boro Police spotted 3 individuals in the flood control area some distance up stream.
This young man was then removed and rushed to the waiting Ambulance, warmed and transported to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital.
ds cannot express my thanks for the great team work of all involved.

From Coudersport Police:
Thank you to Coudersport Fire and Ambulance for the quick work on pulling the kid out of the channel today. He was a little cold but otherwise ok. Special thanks to the bystanders and Trooper Butler for helping out. Great work!
