MERCER COUNTY, NJ (CBS) – Hopewell Township authorities released body camera video of an icy water rescue earlier this week documenting the frightening moments. The incident happened around 12:25 a.m. Thursday at Rosedale Lake near Rosedale Park.
Officers responded after several people called about a woman in water up to her neck. When authorities arrived, the woman was 25 feet off the shore, waving her arms to stay afloat.
The body camera video shows the group of officers working on a lifeguard rope to get her ashore. The officer’s body camera video shows them letting go of the rope so there is enough to reach the woman.
The video is interrupted when the woman is on land. She was treated for potential hypothermia and then taken to a local hospital. She is currently in stable condition.
