River rescue near Brown's Island

If you plan on heading down to the river this weekend, wear a life jacket. The water is over five feet, which means a floating device is mandatory.

Saturday afternoon Richmond fire crews rescued two people from the river near Brown's Island after they tried to help a friend who had fallen off a rock.

That person eventually was able to swim to shore.

No one was wearing a life jacket.

Fortunately there were no injuries.
