Rescue crews saved a woman from the Red River in Fargo early Monday morning, Forum Communications reported.

Police and firefighters got a call at about 1:30 a.m. about a woman in the river at the Midtown Dam in Dike East Park. Rescuers started searching the shore after they found a cell phone, Forum reported.

A fire crew in a boat spotted the woman floating in the river about 20 yards north of the boat ramp in Dike East Park, and she was pulled to shore, Forum reported.

Authorities performed CPR on the woman and she was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and treated for hypothermia. Her condition was not immediately reported.

Officials said the woman is the same woman who called 911 on May 25 to report she was in the Red River, Forum reported.
