Five fire crews and personnel from the police and ambulance service were all tasked this morning, after reports were received of a child in the water near to Silver Bridge, just north of Garve.
The incident occurred shortly before 11.20am, with fire crews from Inverness and Invergordon racing to the scene, followed by three specialist water rescue teams from Elgin, Inverness and Fort William, after a call was received from the Scottish Ambulance Service.
The crews were stood down en route after the child was recovered from the water without the need for the specialist assistance.
The child is said to be safe and well following the ordeal.
A spokesman for the fire service said: “We were called by the Scottish Ambulance service at 11.18am to reports of a person in the water near Silver Bridge in Garve.
“Two pumps and three specialist water rescue teams were sent to the incident, however, were stood down en route to the incident at 11.41am.
“The casualty has been removed from the water and is now in the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service.”
A police spokesman confirmed the child had been removed from the water before officers arrived, with personnel attending as a precaution to make sure everything was in order.
