LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Firefighters on Wednesday morning rescued a man in Atwater Village after he became stranded in the fast-moving Los Angeles River.
The man was seen clinging to a tree just south of Colorado Street as firefighters approached him in an inflatable raft that was tethered to the shore.
After being helped into the boat and fitted with a life vest and helmet, the man was escorted to safety and medically evaluated by paramedics.
Whether he suffered any injuries was unclear.
