EL DORADO, Kan. (KSNW) – A young boy slid into the Walnut River after he slipped from the shoreline. Firefighters had to lay a ladder against the ground leading into the river.

An El Dorado firefighter climbed down the bank, placed the boy in a life jacket, and wrapped a rope around the boy.

The boy was hoisted up the ladder and brought safely to the flat ground.
