SOUTH EL MONTE - Two people are stuck in a tree surrounded by water and can’t get down inside the Whittier Narrows Recreational Area, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported.
The victims are surrounded by about four to five feet of standing water, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.
Firefighters were called at 12:23 p.m. to the 100 block of North Durfee Avenue.
Firefighters initially called for an inflatable boat to aid in the rescue, but a helicopter has been summoned to hoist the victims from the tree.
