Watch the harrowing rescue of a man stuck in a flooded river

A man has been saved from gushing flood waters in the swollen Los Angeles River in a dramatic rescue.

The man was trapped in the river and held on to a concrete barrier wall as a rescuer from Los Angeles Fire Department was lowered down from a helicopter.

The rescue worker then secured the man to a cable before the pair were hoisted back up to the helicopter.

The man, 51, was taken to hospital to be treated for hypothermia.
