ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two homeless men are OK after being trapped on the wrong side of the downtown St. Louis flood wall.

KMOV-TV (https://bit.ly/1JERjjb ) reports that the men were camping on the Mississippi River side of the wall Monday morning when rising waters trapped them. A woman who advocates for the homeless found them in danger, and called for help.

Firefighters had to use an aerial ladder to get the men to safety. They were unharmed.

The river is nearly 7 feet above flood stage in St. Louis, and expected to rise another 8 feet by Thursday.
