A woman who followed her dog into the Tolt River Saturday afternoon, Nov. 25, was rescued by firefighters from Eastside Fire and Rescue, Fall City, Duvall, and the King County Sheriff’s Office.
At 2:20 p.m., King County received a call reporting the woman in her 20s stuck on a log in the Tolt River. When the rescue teams arrived, they found the woman was unable to move or get up from her position. The team was able to get her a life jacket and helped retrieve her from the log.
Captain Steve Westlake, Eastside Fire and Rescue public information officer, said the woman made it to shore at around 3 p.m., and told the responders that her dog had run into the river and she was caught up by the flow when she tried to go after him. Westlake said the dog was not found.
The woman did not have any major injuries and was picked up from the location by her husband.
