Marietta Police responded to the Muskingum River on Sunday in regards to a woman in the river.  Police officers reportedly noticed what appeared to be a lifeless body in the river. The officers swam out to retrieve the body, but as they neared her, she gasped for air and became frantic.
 
 
Once WMOA arrived at the scene the police officers had gotten the woman out of the river. The initial call to police was in reference to her jumping off of the train bridge that spans the Muskingum, however, further investigations revealed that she was more likely to have jumped from the dock on the east side of the river.
 
 
The 52-year-old woman was later transported in a police cruiser to Marietta Memorial Hospital and no additional details are available at this time.
