According to reports, a unidentified woman jumped off the Washington Avenue bridge near the University of Minnesota in downtown Minneapolis. The woman survived the fall and was then dragged down by the currents.
A homeless man nearby saw the woman and jumped into the body of water to help her onto the shore.
The woman was taken to the hospital for treatment and a psychiatric evaluation.
Police said they offered the homeless man shelter, but he declined and returned to his camp underneath the bridge.
