ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say rescue crews were able to reach a woman trapped on a rock in the Chattahoochee River and bring her to safety.

Atlanta Fire Rescue spokeswoman Janet Ward said the woman was stranded in the river Monday in the Peachtree creek area.

Ward tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1mgBOT4) that the woman was pulled from the water a short time after police and firefighters were dispatched to the river.
