(AP) — Reno officials say they have rescued four people from the Truckee River after they fell off a flotation device.
Reno Fire Department Chief Dirk Minore says none of the victims were wearing life jackets but all were conscious and breathing when rescued Sunday afternoon. He says fire officials rescued three of the people and the fourth made it to the shore without help.
They were hospitalized with minor injuries and hypothermia.
Minore says the three women and a man were using a float ring designed for a pool that was insufficient for Truckee River conditions.
