Late Sunday afternoon, crews were dispatched to the river near Bulls Island Recreation Area, which is across the river from Solebury Township, as 11 people were reported in distress in the water.

Crews managed a successful rescue operation, ensuring all those in water were brought back to shore, according to the Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance and Rescue Squad.

Only minor injuries were reported.

The Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance and Rescue Squad, Stockton Fire Company, New Hope Eagle Volunteer Fire Company, Point Pleasant Fire Company, and the New Jersey State Park Police were dispatched to the scene.

“We would like to remind everyone who plans to go out in the river to ALWAYS wear a life jacket,” rescue squad officials said.
