FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A Fresno man is being praised for pulling over and helping to save two people who almost drowned when their car accidentally went into a canal.

The Fresno Bee reports that 53-year-old Richard Llewellyn was driving in central Fresno around 4 a.m. Saturday when he saw a woman yelling by the side of the road. Llewellyn pulled over and saw her husband trying to rescue another woman from a car that was underwater in the canal.

The newspaper reports Llewellyn grabbed a rope from his truck and used it to pull the woman out of the canal. He then ran downstream to find a man clinging to the canal's concrete wall. Police soon arrived and helped carry the man out of the water.
