Posted: Updated:

A dramatic rescue Wednesday on the Browns River in Jericho after a woman slipped and fell into the water.

Police say Shelby Barber, 20, of North Hero, fell into the water upstream of the Chittenden Mill and was swept down to the falls where she was able to climb onto a rock ledge.

Neighbors say they heard screaming at around 10 p.m. and called 911.

It took crews nearly two hours to rescue Barber.

Police told WCAX News Thursday that Barber told them she slipped on the rocks and fell, but they are still investigating.
