Fast-acting friends may have helped save the life of a young man,14, washed away by swift moving water late Monday afternoon. Three boys were playing near a creek in the Raintree subdivision when one got caught in a current. The two friends immediately ran for help.

Meanwhile, the boy washed away was able to climb ashore. College Station Police were on the scene and called for back-up from Bryan Fire Department. Bryan Fire keeps the water rescue boat. The boy was rescued and found to be uninjured.

His mother, a nursing student, said she planned on checking him over again just in case.

The accident happened in the 2700 block of Red Hill Drive in the Raintree Subdivision.
