Broome County Emergency Services officials say two people were rescued from the Susquehanna River at around 11:15 p.m. May 17.

Scanner transmissions broadcast that a man had entered the river at Confluence Park to try to rescue his dog from the river but struggled in the water.

Another man entered the river in an attempt to rescue the first before Binghamton and Johnson City Fire Department Boats were deployed.

Authorities say both men were retrieved from the river and are okay and it’s believed the dog was also rescued.
