A man has been taken to the hospital after he fell into an irrigation canal near the flooded mobile home park in Eagle.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office says a man was checking out the flooding situation near Hatchery and Trout roads when he fell into the canal. A Good Samaritan saw the fall and called 911.

The man rescued was transported to the hospital as a precaution. The water in the canal is running fast and cold and about four to five feet deep.
