Three people and a dog were rescued from a tree during flooding in Elysian Valley, California.  The Los Angeles River was so overfull, it burst its banks and flooded out a good portion of the area.

The LA Fire Department got a call advising that someone was stuck in a tree, with water rushing by in a torrent around them.  When they arrived, they found three people in the tree, along with a dog.

All three people were rescued and so was the dog.  The survivors all have the quick thinking and excellent training that the fire department’s swift water rescue team.
