Shortly after 11 p.m., San Francisco firefighters rescued a woman who fell into the frigid bay waters Thursday.

The woman's boyfriend tried to use his jacket to help pull her out of the water off Pier 19, but that didn't work.

Finally, firefighters lowered a ladder, and helped her out.

The circumstances surrounding how she ended up in the water in the first place are unclear.
