A WOMAN was pulled from the River Severn in Worcester this afternoon (Tuesday) by two heroic passers-by.

Emergency services were called to the river near the South Quay where the woman was spotted in the water at about 4pm.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We understand two passers-by spotted the woman in the river and went into the water beyond their own depth to get her out.

"It appeared she had stopped breathing, but life-support treatment given at the scene by the ambulance and fire service led to her breathing again and, in a poorly condition, she was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.”
