Emergency crews in Eau Claire respond to another bridge jumper

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Emergency crews in Eau Claire were called out to another river rescue Sunday evening. 

Crews responded to the High Bridge, near the dam, after a report of a man jumping into the Chippewa River.

Rescuers were able to get him to shore. The Eau Claire Fire Department helped by using a rope system to pull the man up the steep embankment. 

Officials said the man was taken to a local hospital with injuries, though they didn't know his condition as of Sunday night. They also haven't identified the man. 

The ECPD will continue investigating the incident. This is the third river rescue in just one week for crews in the Chippewa Valley.
