Good Samaritan Rescues Man In Canal

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A man fishing in a Fresno irrigation canal nearly drowned.  Luckily he was plucked out of shallow water by a man passing by on a bike.  

Donald White and a friend were riding their bicycles on the canal bank along east McKinley when they saw a man fall in the water.   He called 911.  "While they were on their way he went under water so I went down the bank and pulled him out."  

Emergency crews weren't far behind.  It took a few minutes but they were able to get him up the steep bank to safety.  White says the man was frightened after falling in the water.  "Oh just keeping him calm.   Keeping him alive."

The water appeared to be shallow but for some reason the man became disoriented after falling in.  He was taken to the hospital to be check out in the emergency room.
