News Staff's picture

A teenage girl was pulled from the waters of the Passaic River after a multi-jurisdictional response led to her rescue.

At about 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, Livingston Police received a call from a medical office on Regent Street reporting a 16-year-old female patient had fled the facility on foot. Staff members from the office followed the patient and notified police that she was approaching the Passaic River near 630 West Mt. Pleasant Avenue on the East Hanover border.

The girl entered the water and began to swim upstream but the current of the river and frigid water quickly took effect on the teen.
