Hero saves woman from river.

Today I would like to honor Eau Claire Police Officer Zac Becker for bravery in jumping into a river to save a woman who was unconscious. #Realheroes "At approximately 12:50am on 6/6/21, Officer Becker was in the Phoenix Park area working on a case when a person approached him and informed him that his girlfriend was missing. The boyfriend said he last saw her walking under the Haymarket Landing Footbridge. While checking this area, Officer Becker heard a splash in the water coming from under the bridge. Officer Becker quickly made his way to the riverbank and found the girlfriend unconscious in the water and floating towards the middle of the river. Officer Becker quickly made the decision to go into the river to take ahold of her and swim back to shore. While doing so, she was unconscious and not responding to Officer Becker. Officer Becker held onto her until other officers and EMS arrived to assist in carrying her up the bank. By this point, she was semi-conscious and was provided medical attention by EMS. We commend Officer Becker’s quick actions which likely saved her life. https://www.nbc15.com/2021/06/07/eau-claire-pd-officer-commended-quick-action-that-saved-womans-life/
