(Minneapolis, MN) -- Coaches and rowers from the University of Minnesota crew team rescued an injured woman who they found stranded in the Mississippi River. One team member tells KSTP-TV that the woman's lips were purple and her skin was very pale when they pulled her out of the water. Another told the "Minneapolis Star Tribune" that she overheard the woman tell paramedics that she had fallen into the river Tuesday night. She is being treated at the Hennepin County Medical Center.
