FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was taken to a hospital after she fell into the Red River and used her cellphone to direct rescuers to her location.

The Forum reports that the Fargo Fire Department responded to the call about 2:20 a.m. Friday from a woman who phoned 911 while clinging to rock in the river.

Authorities say emergency workers found the woman about 100 yards downstream from the Midtown Dam, where she went into the water.

Firefighters waded out to the woman and held her head above water while helping her into a boat.

She was taken to shore and transported to a Fargo hospital.
