Emergency crews rescued two homeless man trapped along the flood wall in downtown St. Louis Monday morning.

Multiple units responded to the scene at Leonor K. Sullivan and Biddle. The city has not closed the flood wall yet so the men were able to make it through an opening. However, police said the men were never in the water, but were trapped by the rising water.

Firefighters were able to lead the men to safety.
