BANGOR, Maine — Officer Rob Angelo didn’t have time to think about the temperature of the water before he shed his Kevlar vest and utility belt and waded into the Penobscot River early Monday evening.
Moments earlier, a woman had jumped from the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge, which looms 40 feet above. She was in the middle of the river, flailing, asking for help.
