Two young boys were rescued from a Colorado Springs creek that was moving fast due to a thunderstorm, reports Colorado Springs Gazette.

Firefighters believe the children, who both appeared to be under 10, were playing on rocks in the creek when the water was low, and became stranded after water from the afternoon storm caused the creek to swiftly rise.
