3 Teens Rescued After Truck Goes into Creek in Elfin Forest| NBC 7 San Diego
Three teens driving around Elfin Forest found themselves in a dangerous situation Sunday when the truck they were driving was swept away by the strong current of a creek.
“We just kind of floated down river, like just kind of took us down and we kind of flipped over,” Ben Ripley and Ricky Heidt told NBC 7. “Our friend drove through that this morning and he thought he could make it a little after and we just took off and lost control of the water, flipping back and forth, on top of each other the car hit something.”
The teens had decided to drive through the creek for fun. The incident happened around 6:44 p.m. in the Elfin Forest. The rescue was complicated because of the tall trees around where the truck had gone in.
