A person has been rescued from gushing floodwaters within the swollen Los Angeles River in a dramatic rescue.
The person was trapped within the river and restrained by a concrete barrier wall as a Los Angeles Fireplace Division rescuer descended from a helicopter.
The rescuer then tied the person to a cable earlier than the couple climbed again as much as the helicopter.
The 51-year-old man was taken to hospital for therapy for hypothermia.
