HVFCo Lady Katherine fall

Haddam Volunteer Fire Company responded to a medical emergency at 8:20 p.m. Thursday, June 23, 2016 at Eagle Landing State Park in the Tylerville section of Haddam. A woman, who had recently disembarked from the Lade Katherine Cruises boat, stopped on the pier to take photos. She stepped backwards, lost her footing and fell into the Connecticut River between the boat and dock. Three members of the Lady Katherine cruise jumped into the water, which is approximately 17 feet deep, to help rescue the woman. The woman was taken to a nearby gazebo and Haddam Fire EMS evaluated her on scene.
