Authorities rescue 3 women in 2 separate accidents

CHICAGO — Rescue crews pulled three people from frigid Chicago area waters after two separate accidents.

In Chicago, authorities say a woman fell into the Chicago River near the Michigan Avenue shopping district early Tuesday morning.

Police say the woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Meanwhile in suburban Bolingbrook, firefighters rescued two women after a car fell through an ice-covered pond.

Authorities say one woman was driving the car, which left the road Monday evening and stopped on the ice before breaking through and crashing into the water. Another woman went onto the ice to try to help the driver and had to be rescued as well.

The two were treated for hypothermia at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital and were in stable condition.
