Four People Pulled From Rain-Swollen James River


Four people have been pulled from the rain-swollen James River in downtown Richmond.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports no one was injured when the four were removed near Haxall Point on Wednesday night.

Richmond fire Lt. Robbie Hagaman says a distress call came in about 10:10 p.m. in an area between the Manchester and Mayo bridges.

Three stranded people were removed by boat, along with a fourth person who had tried to help them.
