DEWEY BEACH, Del.- Authorities say a woman was rescued from the Atlantic Ocean off the Dewey Beach coast early Wednesday morning.

Local firefighters and Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Police responded to the call at around 7 a.m., according to Drew Aydelotte, chief of DNREC's Fish & Wildlife NRP.

The woman was transported to Beebe Medical Center where she is being treated for extreme hypothermia. There is no word yet on her condition. 

Meantime, investigators are still trying to determine the woman's identity.

"We don't even know who she is at this point," Aydelotte said. "She was found with no ID on her." 

How the woman ended up in the water is also a mystery, according to Aydelotte.

"She is being incubated so we're not able to question her," he said. We're trying to determine how she entered the water and where she entered the water."

Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the investigation into the incident, which Aydelotte described as "suspicious." 

"The situation is unusual as we typically don't have swimmers this time of year," he said.
