A TEENAGER was taken to hospital after getting into the river in Upton-upon-Severn.

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service was called by the police just after 7pm yesterday to the River Severn by the Swan Hotel, Waterside, after reports of a girl in the river and a man who had gone in after her.

A boat crew from Evesham and Worcester along with a water rescue crew from Upton attended but the two people were out of the water by the time they arrived.

An ambulance, a paramedic and a rapid response vehicle were also called and the girl, thought to be in her late teens, was taken to Worcester Royal Hospital as a precaution.

Being a friend of the girl involved, and being there at the time of the incident, I'm rather disappointed that it doesn't mention how there were in fact 3 gentlemen who jumped in after her and dragged her out of the river!
