Baltimore City rescue workers were seen pulling a person out of the Inner Harbor around 9:40 a.m. on Monday, after a 911 call for an apparent dead body came in around 9:25 a.m., according to the Baltimore City Fire Department.
Emergency responders, including a dive team, were dispatched to the area around Pier IV at the Inner Harbor.
Baltimore police said an unnamed woman was pulled from the water and resuscitated before she was taken to an area hospital. Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright said the woman was in cardiac arrest when she was taken from the scene. Paramedics administered advance life-support care while in route to the hospital. Later at the hospital, the woman experienced a “return of spontaneous circulation,” Cartwright said. She remains in critical condition.
Earlier in the morning, police and fire officials said the woman had been declared dead and the body taken to medical examiners.
Cartwright said they “have no idea” at this time how the person ended up in the water.
