Fire crews rescued a man Sunday after they say he nearly drowned in high waters on Buena Vista Road.

Firefighters say a homeless man was under a bridge near Elkhorn Road.  They say as it continued to rain, water levels rose under the bridge. 

According to a witness, the man is paralyzed from the waist down and couldn’t get up the hill.

That witness called police who came and rescued the man.
