ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A bizarre rescue at the Flint River this morning. A family walking along the Riverwalk in Albany spotted a woman wearing only a black T-shirt next to a drainage pipe. They called out to her.
When she didn't respond, They called 911. Firefighters worked with police and paramedics to get the woman to safety and to the hospital. Police have called off their criminal investigation and don't suspect foul play.
"We had a female laying on the bank of the river," said Lt. Kevin Prince of the Albany Fire Department. "She was not actually in the water, and through our efforts and EMS and police department all working together, we were able to raise here up from the edge of the water and take her out, and they were able to transport her to the hospital."
The woman has been identified as 35-year-old Pamela Eubanks from Worth County. Her husband reported her missing just before midnight last night.
Worth County Sheriff Freddie Thompkins told us she filled up her car in Sylvester around 4PM, sent text messages to family saying she was in Florida early this morning, and he has no idea how or why she ended up at the Flint River.
What's difficult to understand is how the woman ended up where she was discovered. While there is a path down to the river, the drain pipe and concrete slab where she was spotted is hard to see.
Her car was found north of the drainage pipe just off of Blaylock Street in a wooded area. We were there when her family members drove the black Nissan Sentra out. It appears she entered the river close to where she parked her car and then drifted downstream in the cold water.
"She was shaking very hard, you could tell she was very cold," said Prince.
Eubanks was not responsive to paramedics and was unable to answer any questions. She was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia.
While police tell us they believe Eubanks will be okay, neither Phoebe Putney nor Palmyra Hospitals had any record of her being admitted for treatment.
