Brian D'Amico reports a woman fell into the water from the Summer Street Bridge around 12:45 p.m. A passing Boston police officer jumped in to help the screaming woman and managed to get her a raft - to which they clung until shortly after 1 p.m., when a State Police boat arrived and fished them out - for transport to the Tea Party Museum next to the Congress Street Bridge. Two Boston firefighters also jumped into the water to help.
Boston EMS reports both woman and police officer suffered only minor injuries and possible hypothermia. Police say they firefighters also suffered hypothermia.
