The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has identified the 28-year-old woman who drowned Saturday morning on the east bank of The Flats as Nisa Abdullah.

Abdullah and two men reportedly jumped into the water across from the Nautica Pavilion.

All three were pulled from the Cuyahoga River during the early morning rescue mission.  Abdullah's body was recovered and the two men were rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Lt. Gray of the Cleveland Fire Department warns everyone of the dangers lurking beneath what seems like calm waters, "...we constantly talk about undercurrent and not to swim in areas that you're not aware of."

The Medical Examiner's Office is conducting tests to determine the cause of death and if alcohol was involved.
