Cape Coral Fire Department and Cape Coral Police Department responded to a senior woman in a canal Tuesday.

According to CCFD, crews were in the 900 block of Archer Parkway E, where a woman says she went into a canal around 11 a.m. to get her dog and was unable to get out of the water for roughly 9 hours.

Firefighters eventually responded to the woman and assisted her from the canal safely. She was then taken to the hospital for treatment.

There is no further information at this time.
