San Jose crews rescued a man stranded on a branch in Coyote Creek.

SkyFox flew over the scene at noon. The man, wearing a jacket and cap, appeared to be avoiding the rushing creek waters by standing on a branch. Garbage and debris floated all around. 

Crews were preparing a stretcher to provide to him. Just after 12:30 p.m., he was rescued and was being evaluated by paramedics, firefighters said.
