Man Stranded On Rock In River Gets Airlifted

A man stranded on a rock in the middle of the river is saved by helicopter. 

The whole rescue was caught on camera. The 25-year-old swimmer was swept downstream from Emerald Pools along the Yuba River in California. 

He held on for dear life to the last boulder before a waterfall, police say. Emergency workers lowered a basket from the helicopter in order to bring him to safety.
