Three University of Rochester medical students are being called heroes tonight.
They were attending a community outreach picnic when a biker rushed over asking for help. Without hesitation, 22-year-old Bridget Hughes of Williamsville and 23-year-old Lindsay Wahl of Pittsford rushed to the canal and jumped in. The students were able to get the boy out of the stroller.
25-year-old Sarah Nevarez of Pittsford helped grab the boy out of the water. Bridget stayed with the father and daughter, who was still stuck in the stroller.
Bridget tried to keep them afloat until the rescue teams arrived.
Rochester Fire and Police Departments completed the rescue.
Police are still investigating the incident. At this time, both children are still in guarded condition.
