Two people were sent to hospital Tuesday night after becoming stuck in mud along the riverbank.

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service rescued the people trapped at the edge of the Red River near the St. Boniface Hospital at around 7 p.m.

One person was transported in stable condition, while the other was listed in unstable condition.

The WFPS is reminding the public to use caution around all bodies of water in the city as current water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia and injury.
