(CNN) — Authorities say a woman on a jet ski was trying to enter the U.S. illegally.
They say the woman and two others were trying to cross over from Canada Wednesday morning.
Firefighters say the woman got stranded on ice just off New York’s Grand Island. They had to use a special rescue craft to reach her.
The two others who were with her made it to shore.
All three were later evaluated by paramedics before U.S. border patrol and state police took over.
Grand Island is located on the Niagara River, just south of the Niagara Falls.
