Boston EMS Recruits Save Man Who Fell From Mass. Ave Bridge

BOSTON (CBS) – Two Boston EMS recruits got some on the job training on Saturday at around 5 p.m. when they saved a man who had fallen from the Mass. Ave bridge.

The recruits, who are set to graduate in one week, were doing drills on the Charles River near the bridge when they spotted the man falling into the water. They quickly leaped into the water and began their rescue.

“That was a first time experience for me actually. I grew up on the water. So, I was comfortable going in there. I knew the risks going in there ahead of time. We did what had to be done,” said recruit Peter Janeliunas.

The man they rescued is listed in critical condition.
