(Washington, DC)  —  DC emergency crews rescued a man who fell into the Potomac River near Georgetown last night.  Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer says the man had been taking pictures as he walked along the river’s edge near the Washington Harbour development when he fell in the water and was unable to climb back onto shore.  The “Washington Post” reports emergency crews tossed a rescue ring in the water and two divers jumped into the river.  The District’s fire boat was able to pull the man from the water.  The man was taken to a nearby boathouse where he was evaluated by rescue personnel.
