One person was taken to the hospital after a water rescue in Eagle tonight.

Crews were called to the scene after reports of three people in the river just south of the corner of State St. and Eagle Rd.

Firefighters from Eagle and Boise in addition to Ada County paramedics and members of the Ada County Sheriff’s Office were all on scene to help.

They found two females in the river, a third female was able to get out of the river on her own.

Crews were able to get the two females out of the water.  One of them was taken to the hospital with what people on scene told us were non-life threatening injuries.

Firefighters urge everyone to avoid getting in the river at this time as the conditions are still too dangerous for recreation.
