A quick-thinking resident helped to rescue a man this afternoon who was hanging onto a tree, trapped in the high waters of the Greenville Creek.
The Greenville resident heard the man yelling for help around 1:30 p.m. and tossed out a garden hose near the East Fourth Street bridge, our media partner BlueBag Media reported.
The man, described as in his early to middle 20s, caught the hose and used it to free himself from the high water. His name was not released. He was taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital.
It was not clear how long he had been in the water, nor why he was in the creek.
