Chelan Fire and Rescue were dispatched to what was reported as a drowning Friday night, although it wasn't. In a statement, Chief Brandon Asher said they were dispatched to the “Old Chelan Bridge,” where two individuals were in the water; one of which made it to shore, the other reported as missing. Upon arrival, Chelan Fire and Rescue swimmers, assisted by the Chelan County Sheriff's Office, located the missing individual holding onto one of the bridge pillars in the water, but losing his grip. He was brought to shore by a rescue swimmer. One of the individuals was transported by Chelan EMS, the other by a privately owned vehicle. Chief Asher says both were treated for a near drowning event.
