One woman nearly drowned and 13 others were found either unconscious or injured near Discovery Park Sunday afternoon.
The number of incidents is high for officials. Sacramento City Firefighters said that typically on busy weekends, there are one or two medical incidents.
Many who needed medical attention were a part of the Rage in the River party near Discovery Park, where fire officials say there were a lot of people drinking in triple degree temperatures.
Sacramento City Firefighters said the woman who nearly drowned was in her 30’s and was with her family in the Tiscornia Park region about a quarter of a mile from the party.
A Stanislaus County Sheriff was on a jet ski when he looked down at the water and saw her hand near the surface of the water. The rest of her body was submerged in the water. It’s believed she was in the water for more than 30 seconds.
The Sheriff Deputy pulled the unconscious woman onto the beach and crews provided her with life support. She was alert soon after and taken to a hospital.
The other 13 people who needed medical attention on Sunday either had broken bones, cuts, or were found unconscious. Fire officials said many of them were attending the party.
