(KMOV)-A young boy is now safe after being rescued from the Meramec River in Arnold.
Authorities told News 4 that two boys, both 12, were fishing on the river bank early Thursday afternoon when Bradley Edwards slipped and fell into the river. Michael Melchior tried to pull Bradley out but could not. He called 911 with his cell phone. When firefighters arrived Michael was able to direct firefighters to Bradley Edwards who was clinging to a rock.
Michael was in the river for about 30 minutes. He only complained of being a little cold once he made it to dry land.
