Police helped pull a woman to safety from the Des Planes RiverSunday afternoon in northwest suburban Schiller Park.
The woman fell into the flooded river about 6:15 p.m., Schiller Park police said in a statement. Officers arrived and initially couldn’t find her due to the flooding, police said.
They found the woman’s trail and followed her into waist-high water, police said.
The fire department arrived with a boat just as officers reached her, police said. They pulled her back to dry ground. She was apparently OK.
Schiller Park police did not respond Sunday night to a request for additional details.
