​ Nashua Fire Rescue responded to the end of Pearson Avenue for a report of a water rescue. When we arrived we found a female out of the water, down an embankment at the edge of the Nashua River. It appeared that the patient had slid down the embankment. We assisted the Police in getting a floatation devise down to her. A firefighter lowered himself down a rope to do a patient assessment and apply a harness on the patient. Crews set up a hauling system to get the patient up the embankment. The patient was loaded into an ambulance and transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
