With the unusual hashtag #wetboots, police in York have revealed how they saved a person from drowning on Tuesday night (January 10).
Officers linked arms to form a human chain before entering the water.
The North Yorkshire Police Firearms Support Unit tweeted how their officers and police from York joined together to “save a person who entered intending to harm themselves”.
Their work was appreciated on Twitter…
