Rescuers Save 2 from Delaware River

Burlington Police rescued two men out of the Delaware River early Sunday morning.

At 1:51 a.m., the police were dispatched to the area of the Interstate Pipeline in Commerce Square for a report of two people who fell into the river. The two victims were pulled to safety by other workers on the barge.

Investigations said the two men were on a smaller boat that started to sink, causing the men to go into the water, according to police.

The two men are employees of the Miller Environmental Group. One is a 55-year-old from West Deptford, and the other is a 34-year-old from Philadelphia.

Both men were transported to the hospital to receive medical treatment and are expected to survive, according to police.
