BEND, OR -- A Bend woman was rescued from the spillway near the Newport Bridge, Sunday afternoon, after she lost her float. Bend Police say the 58-year-old woman was holding on to a buoyed cable stretched across the river but was quickly getting exhausted.
A Bend man, 30-year-old Tanner Boslau, paddled over and was able to help the woman until police could get a rope out. He secured the rope around her and police pulled her to safety.
Police say Boslau acted heroically, putting himself in danger to save a woman in trouble.
