An individual has been taken to Mercy San Juan Medical Center after being pulled from the American River about a mile downstream from the Sunrise Bridge.
Assistant Chief Scott Cockrum of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said firefighters received a report about 1:30 this afternoon that an individual had been seen floating face down in the river. He said rescue crews located a person, pulled the individual from the water and administered CPR.
Cockrum said little information was immediately available regarding the identity or condition of the victim.
A fisherman had been reported missing on the American, but Cockrum said that individual was reported to have been farther downstream, near River Bend Park.
