Police are thanking first responders for saving a woman who had fallen off Allan's Bridge in Guelph.
The fast-paced water reportedly dragged the 39-year-old woman downstream around 300 metres before police and a civilian were able to pull her to safety Saturday afternoon.
Paramedics and firefighters also responded to the scene to help.
The woman was taken to Guelph General Hospital with minor injuries.
