A sledding incident in Franklin on Tuesday ended in a rescue by firefighters.
Authorities say a 3-year-old child fell into the Harpeth River in the Forrest Crossing subdivision at about 1:30 p.m. The mother jumped in to make the initial rescue with the help of a bystander. The mother, though, was injured and unable to climb a steep embankment.
Rescuers used ropes and a basket to pull her to safety over the course of about an hour. The woman was hospitalized and two firefighters were evaluated for cold exposure.
