The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (https://bit.ly/1pkXo0v ) divers rescued the woman early Tuesday in the town of Lysander, about 10 miles northwest of Syracuse.

An Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office helicopter assisted in lighting the river as drivers entered the water and fire departments launched boats. Seneca River Assistant Fire Chief Chris Snow says the divers quickly reached the woman and crews rushed her to a Syracuse hospital.

The woman is listed in stable condition.

It’s unclear how the woman ended up in the water.
