A woman was plucked from the water after a car traveling on the Henry Hudson River plunged into the Hudson River at 94th Street shortly after 10 a.m. on Thursday.

A woman, the driver, had escaped the car and was in the water by the time fire personnel arrived, the fire department said. At least 60 fire personnel responded to the scene.

The individual was evaluated by EMS and transported to St. Luke's hospital in Morningside Heights, Manhattan.

There was no information available on whether other people were in the vehicle or on how the accident occurred.
