FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – A man was rescued out of a southeast Fresno canal after he says he was cut off by another driver, sending his car into the water.

It happened around 3 p.m. at McKinley and Chestnut Avenues. The driver says another person cut him off while driving eastbound on McKinley Avenue.

That caused him to hit the curb, sending him and his car into the nearby canal.

He was able to get out with the help of good samaritans pulling him from the water. He’s going to be OK.

His car traveled about 250 feet down stream, and was pulled out around 4:30 p.m.
