Woman Rescued from the Cumberland River

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Metro Nashville firefighters pulled a woman from the Cumberland River overnight after she fell about 30 feet into the water.

WTVF-TV quotes witness Jesse McNabb as saying the woman was holding onto tree branches and calling for help.

Tim Holmes of the Fire Department says the victim was at least on the edge of hypothermia when she was rescued after tumbling over a railing downtown.

She was reported to be from Evansville, Indiana, and was visiting a friend when she decided to take a walk.

Her name wasn't released.
