Norway House RCMP rescued a woman who was neck-deep in swampy water on Thursday night.
The woman left a residence to seek safety after allegedly being assaulted. She walked behind the home into a swampy area, where she became in distress and called out for help.
Officers found a canoe outside a nearby home and paddled to the victim, who was near-drowning.
Police pulled her out of the water and were able to get her safely back to shore. She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries in hospital.
Norway House RCMP continue to investigate.
