Woman rescued from Zumbro River


ORONOCO, Minn. (KTTC) -- A 19-year-old woman who was rescued after falling into the Zumbro River in Oronoco is back at home.

Christina Fredin is recovering from mild hypothermia and first-degree frostbite on one of her legs.

Emergency crews were called to the 1000 block of White Bridge Road Northwest shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday. 

According to her father, David Fredin, Christina was trying to climb up a hill when she fell and rolled into the river.

A deputy found Fredin. The two held on to a passerby's kayak before a pontoon arrived and took them to a nearby boat landing.

An ambulance transported Fredin to Saint Marys Hospital because of exposure to the cold.
