Woman points to where she was rescued after nearly drowning in Cedar River

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A Waterloo woman is recovering after she slipped and fell into the Cedar River. 

Chloe Adams, 18, was fishing by the Ice House in Cedar Falls when she slipped and fell off the rocks around 5 pm.

Friends say they instantly called 911. Cedar Falls Fire and Rescue say they used rope to pull the woman out of the water.

Friends say she only has one arm, making it more difficult for her to swim to the flood gates, where she held on until crews arrived.

Police say she has been transported to an area hospital and is expected to be okay.

Watch Chloe's story tonight at 5 and 6 on KWWL.
