(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A recurring issue in Thunder Bay is the numerous amounts of people that end up in danger because they somehow find their way into the McIntyre River.
This evening was no different. A drunken woman was pulled out of the water this evening around 9:00 pm.
People we spoke to in the area say that they believe the woman was likely suicidal as she didn’t seem cooperative with first responders initially.
The incident unfolded near the CLE grounds at the McIntyre River, a hotspot for public intoxication and drug use.
After being assessed by first responders on the scene, the woman was sent to the emergency department of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre A.K.A. “The Hilton”, where she is expected to make a full recovery.
A person on scene said that the woman went into the water willingly, albeit against common sense.
