Detectives from NYPD's Emergency Service Unit rescued a woman from the East River Wednesday afternoon in a dramatic operation caught on video.
Dets. James Coll and Frank Stevens entered the water underneath the Manhattan Bridge at about 3:30 p.m., swam out about 30 feet from the shore line and secured the 49-year-old woman floating in the river, police said.
The officers brought her aboard a NYPD Harbor Launch boat, and she was taken to Bellevue Hospital for an evaluation. She was listed in stable condition, according to police.
