A man is receiving medical attention after being removed from the American River at River Bend Park in Rancho Cordova this afternoon.
At 4:41 p.m., the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District received a report that a man had jumped from a raft into the river and had not surfaced.
A fire boat found the man, who had been caught in a fast-moving current, tangled in submerged trees, said Battalion Chief Kyle Johnson.
Crews took him from the water about 5:20 p.m. after he had been underwater for at least 40 minutes, and administered CPR, Johnson said. The man was transported to the UC Davis Medical Center.
No details about his conditions are currently available.
