A cyclist in Santa Clara County pulled a man from the rushing waters of Los Gatos Creek. Normally, it's slow-moving but all the rain made for dangerous conditions near the Lexington Reservoir.

Josh, who rescued the man, explained what happened. "I just pulled Harry out of the river. He tried to ride his bike. That was scary, I just dropped my phone, got off my bike and went and grabbed you. That was crazy. You lost your bike, it just flew away. And we didn't lose you, so Harry I'm glad," he said to the man he rescued.

The water was moving quickly behind them. The man said he was wet and cold but OK. Well done, Josh!
