Boy safely rescued from rushing Oro Valley wash

TUCSON - A quick monsoon storm ripped through the Tucson area Friday-- snapping poles, knocking out power and flooding streets.

A flash flood has stranded a teenager at Rancho Vistoso and Oracle, according to the National Weather Service. A 15-year-old was looking at the water in the wash when it trapped him on a sandy island.

The boy called 911 on his cell phone and sustained no injury, Golder Ranch Fire Department officials said.
