Sault Ste. Marie City Police, Fire Services and Ambulance responded to discovery on the city’s waterfront around the lunch hour Friday.
A bystander in the senior’s apartment building told SaultOnline.com that a man walking over the small bridge on the waterfront walkway “noticed something in the water”. Soon after, city police cruisers showed up along with the EMS. “The attendants immediately jumped into the creek” said the by-stander.
“It looked like they pulled a body out of the water” the witness told SaultOnline.com.
Police at the scene would not confirm or deny that a person was dead. Later in the afternoon Police now say the person was alive when the person was pulled from the river and was transported to Sault Area Hospital. No other information has been released.
