GLOUCESTER CITY — Police said a woman was hospitalized after they and occupants of a boat helped get her out of her vehicle when it went into the Delaware River.

Officers responded just after 1 p.m. Thursday to Freedom Pier, according to a release from the Gloucester City Police Department, locating a vehicle upside down in the river.

The release said that Detective Sgt. Carlos Depoder, Officer Sean Gartland, and Officer John Bryszewski Jr. jumped into the water to extricate a woman inside, providing medical treatment before three Good Samaritans loaded the woman onto their boat.
