North Carolina kayaker was rescued Wednesday after he got stuck on a river.

The man was stuck against logs and other debris in the South Fork Catawba River in Charlotte.

The debris had piled up near the Armstrong Ford Road Bridge.

Firefighters used a ladder to get a rope to the partially-submerged man to keep him from going under.

Then they used a boat to get him to safety.

The kayaker was loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.
