A BOY IS IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER FALLING THROUGH A FOURTH STORY WINDOW. AND IN STANISLAUS COUNTY, DEPUTIES CURRENTLY SEARCHING FOR A WOMAN WHO DISAPPEARED IN A RIVER. WE’RE GOING TO START WITH THAT SEARCH UNDERWAY RIGHT NOW IN STANISLAUS COUNTY, AFTER OFFICIALS SAY THAT A WOMAN JUMPED INTO A RIVER TO SAVE HER CHILD, CREWS ARE OUT SEARCHING RIGHT NOW NEAR FISHERMAN’S BEND MOBILE HOME PARK, NEAR NEWMAN KCRA 3’S. CAROLINE ESTRADA IS ON THE SCENE FOR US. SO WHERE DOES THAT SEARCH STAND RIGHT NOW? CAROLINA. YEAH, SO THIS IS A OUTSIDE OF NEWMAN, RIGHT BY THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER. AND THE SEARCH FOR THIS MOTHER STILL CONTINUES. THOSE FLASHING BLUE LIGHTS THAT YOU SEE BEHIND ME, THAT’S THE BOAT THAT JUST MINUTES AGO WAS SEARCHING THE WATER. AND THE STANISLAUS SHERIFF’S OFFICE ALSO HAS BEEN USING DRONES IN THIS SEARCH. AND HERE’S VIDEO OF HOW THE SCENE LOOKED EARLIER TODAY. MULTIPLE AGENCIES ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE SEARCH FOR THIS MOTHER. AND THIS IS WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. SO WE KNOW DEPUTIES RESPONDED TO A MOBILE HOME PARK ON THURSDAY AT AROUND 6:30 P.M. AFTER RECEIVING A CALL OF SEVERAL PEOPLE IN THE WATER DROWNING, INCLUDING CHILDREN. THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE SAID AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL WAS STRUGGLING IN THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER WHEN HER MOTHER JUMPED IN TO TRY TO SAVE HER, BUT SHE ALSO STARTED STRUGGLING. THAT’S WHEN THE GIRL’S 13 YEAR OLD BROTHER JUMPED IN AND WAS ABLE TO PULL OUT THE 11 YEAR OLD GIRL BACK TO SAFETY, BUT THE MOTHER DID NOT RESURFACE, AND THIS SEARCH AT THIS POINT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER THREE HOURS. WE DID SPEAK TO THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE ABOUT THE CONDITIONS THAT THEY HAVE FACED DURING THE SEARCH. UM, KIND OF A RURAL AREA OF THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER. THERE’S NOT A LOT OF HOMES AND STUFF, A LOT OF BRANCHES AND DEBRIS AND ESPECIALLY WITH THE AMOUNT OF RAIN WE HAD OVER THIS PAST WINTER, THERE’S A LOT OF LOOSE DEBRIS. SO, UM, AS LONG AS THEY CAN SAFELY CONTINUE TO SEARCH, THEY’LL STAY OUT HERE. AND OFFICIALS DID TELL US RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE PULLED THE BOATS FROM THE WATER, BUT DEPUTIES WILL STAY HERE ALL NIGHT MAKING SURE THEY’RE STILL SEARCHING THE AREA. AND THE BOATS WILL BE BACK AT SUNRISE. WE KNOW THE CHILDREN IS SAFE, BUT THEY’RE STILL SEARCHING FOR THAT
