MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 14-year-old boy tried to cross a rushing creek in Chaska Saturday afternoon and ended up needing a rescue.

He and his friends were near Creek Road, which has been closed since the storms washed part of it away.

The boy held onto a small tree trunk until help arrived, and he wasn’t hurt.

Firefighters say this serves as a reminder: Even small streams are dangerous and moving fast.
