Firefighters Sent to Rescue Mannequin from LA River
This morning, LAFD personnel were called to the Los Angeles River at Balboa Boulevard in response to a call regarding a person needing rescue from the waterway.
However, the "firefighters sent on a swift-water rescue in the San Fernando Valley this morning found only a mannequin," reports the Daily News. Oops! It is not clear if the non-human was actually removed from the water.
Just this Sunday, the LAFD rescued a man from the LA River via helicopter outside of Downtown. With heavy rains, the River is prone to swell, making it a dangerous area for individuals on foot.
