East River Rescue

We were doing the loop of Manhattan on our bikes this morning when we came upon this scene.


This guy had been walking on this narrow ledge fishing for clams with a pole and a net and he slipped and fell into the East River.

The police came and one of them put on a wet suit and went down a ladder to get the guy.


I am sure the guy was happy to see the policeman.

Apparently he had hurt his shoulder and wrist in the fall.


Here’s a Flickr slideshow of all the photos I took of this scene this morning.
