A woman has died after a boat capsized in the Thames near Fulham .
Emergency services were called to reports of people in the water at Wandsworth Bridge shortly before midnight on Tuesday (December 8).
A lifeboat crew found a man soaking wet on the foreshore, who told them he had been in a small boat with a woman who was still missing.
A police helicopter joined in the search and found a heat source in the river by Wandsworth Bridge, where the lifeboat crew spotted a woman in the water.
Chiswick RNLI said the lifeboat crew brought her onboard and began CPR while travelling upstream to CPR, before handing her over to paramedics upstream at Putney Pier.
London Fire Brigade said the woman later died in hospital but the man's condition was not thought to be life-threatening.
It said police were not treating the incident as suspicious.
Adam Robson, the RNLI's community incident reduction manager for London, said: "It's not clear how or why these two people ended up the river but we would urge everyone to take care to stay safe around the water.
"The Thames is very popular in the run up to Christmas so whether you are using the river over the festive period, or taking a walk alongside it, please take care. If you do spot someone in difficulty, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard."
