Two off-duty police officers spending a day on the water, helped two fishermen who fell into the Oswego River.

Oswego’s Fire Chief, Randy Griffin, tells NewsChannel 9, the officers were also fishing and tried to help the men who went overboard Thursday, October 3rd just before noon. They were on scene until Marine 1 and the Oswego Fire Department inflatable boat arrived to help.
