A man was rescued from floodwaters after he was found trapped in high water overnight in Dallas, officials said.

The man told rescuers that a friend with whom he had been camping might be trapped downstream, according to Fox 4 News.

Dallas-Fire Rescue found the first man stranded in a creek bed late Monday near the 11000 block of Harry Hines Boulevard and were able to pull him to safety unharmed.

A boat was used to search near the 2500 block of Lombardy Lane but it was unclear whether a second person was rescued or missing Tuesday morning, said Jason Evans, fire department spokesman.

No injuries were reported.
