Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Philadelphia rescue dive teams plucked three people from the icy Schuylkill River Wednesday morning.

A man fell into the water near Shawmont Avenue and Nixon Street in the Roxborough neighborhood around 12:30 a.m.

His two friends, a man and a woman, jumped in to save him, but later found themselves in deep trouble because of the frigid water temperature.

Dive teams rescued everyone.

They were all taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia.
