Prince Albert firefighters helped save a La Ronge man who fell into the North Saskatchewan River yesterday.


It was around 5:30 pm when the department received a report that someone had fallen off the railway bridge into the water.


A battalion chief with the department threw the man a line, which he hung on to until the rescue boat arrived.


The man was then taken to Victoria Hospital for treatment.


The man’s name has not been released.
