Just before 12:30 PM on Sunday May 25, 2014, firefighters and paramedics from the Howard County (MD) Department of Fire and Rescue Services (HCDFRS) and the Carroll County Water Rescue/Dive Team were alerted for a swift water rescue in the Patapsco River off of Henryton Road, Marriottsville, Maryland. First-arriving units were directed about 100 yards down a path off of Henryton Rd and found a 22 year old male partially submerged in slow moving water. Firefighters entered the water and removed the victim who was in cardiac arrest. Paramedics began CPR on the scene and then transported the patient to Howard County General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Shown is HCDFRS’s water rescue apparatus.
