FRIANT, Calif. (CNN) — A rescue team fought a rushing river to save a trapped man and his dog in California. On Wednesday, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office released video of a water rescue.
They say crews were called to Lost Lake Park in Friant on August 26th. A man and his dog were apparently seen clinging to a tree in the middle of San Joaquin River.
Deputies say the 66-year-old man had been in a kayak that overturned. Crews first brought the dog safely to shore, then rescued the man.
They say no one was hurt. Both the man and dog were wearing life jackets.
