Tree Rescue

PUTAH CREEK, Calif. (KION) -- A woman has been rescued from the middle of a creek after clinging to a tree for safety.

It happened Wednesday May 12, in Putah Creek near Middletown, California around noon.

Deputies with Solano and Yolo Counties responded to a report of the woman stuck in the middle of the river. Other crews along with a CHP helicopter also arrived, while a rescue swimming from the fire department made his way to the victim.
