Three men were rescued from a flood-swollen creek in Cleveland this morning after they attempted to go tubing around 5 a.m.

After the men apparently got caught in brush on Mouse Creek behind Cleveland High School, bystanders heard their cries for help and called 911, according to a news release from Bradley County EMS.

All three were safely removed from the creek, and one 29-year-old was taken to the hospital.
