A man on a personal watercraft ran into trouble while traveling on the flooded Cedar River near Evansdale, Iowa, on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016. Crews with Evansdale Fire Rescue attempted to hand him a rope from a bridge, but he declined, insisting on holding a different rope attached to his watercraft. The man eventually swam towards shore and accepted a rescue rope after tying his craft to a submerged tree.
