Crews pull one of the victims from the Hudson River on Friday.


CORINTH - Rescuers have pulled three people from the fast-moving Hudson River.

The rescue happened late Friday afternoon right under the Densmore Bridge.

Rescue crews say a young woman or teenager on a jet ski got caught on a safety rope that runs across the river.

The jet ski went over the dam, but she was able to grab the rope.

Her father and another person who went in to rescue her also got stuck on the rope until fire departments came and were able to pull all three to safety.
