Dive team saves woman in Stillaguamish River

Two successful water rescues by Snohomish County Sheriff's Office occurred over the weekend.

In Arlington, a woman walked into the Stillaguamish River in an apparant suicide attempt. She was distracted talking to a dive team member while another was able to capture her from behind. She was taken to a hospital.

The other rescue was in Gold Bar on the railroad tracks at Big Bend over the Skykomish River. The woman, who also reportedly was suicidal, was eventually talked off the tracks and taken to a hospital.
