Men rescue 66-year-old from river

A joy ride turned into a rescue mission Tuesday evening in O'Fallon.

Kendall Smith, 22, of Wentzville and Jason Gjere, 18, of St. Paul were riding all-terrain vehicles when they spotted something floating in floodwater that covered Firma Road.

The aftermath of Hurricane Ike sent torrential rains and high wind through the area last weekend, causing flash flooding."We thought it was a log or something and then I saw it waving - it was kind of freaky," Smith said.
