SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose fire officials say they had to rescue a homeless man after he became trapped in a rain-swollen creek.

The man was waist deep in the creek near the city’s golf course and clinging to trees and debris when crews found him around 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Fire Capt. Reggie Williams tells the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/1gHmr3j) he was pulled out of the water and taken to a hospital for treatment of fatigue and hypothermia.

It was not known how long he had been in the creek.

San Jose was under an urban and small stream flood warning in the morning, as a storm system that is pounding the state moved through the area.
