The Bend Fired Department had to save a man on an intertube stuck at the Colorado Street Spill Way.
The man had rented the intertube from a local business and was warned about the spill way and how strong currents can be in the Deschutes, but he says that the current caught him off guard pinning him and the intertube in the spillway.
Rescuers were able to get him out of the water with a ladder and no injuries are reported.
