Another man was able to pull the victim out of the fast-moving water before emergency workers arrived, an Ada County Sheriff’s Office spokesman reports.
Paramedics checked the man out, but he appears to be OK, the spokesman said.
The man was checking a flood gate near the Hatchery/Trout roads intersection about 11:10 a.m. when he fell into the water and was rescued by a man who was with him, ACSO reports.
“By the time we got on scene, he was able to get out of the water,” an Ada County dispatcher said.
