OREM, Utah Had Orem police Officer Chris Watson waited to take his gun belt off before jumping into the Provo River, the unconscious woman floating in the current probably would have died.

"I didn't have time to do anything," Watson said. "I just had to go out and grab her."

Watson and another officer rescued the 25-year-old woman from drowning Saturday morning after she dropped from a bridge almost 20 feet into the river.
