A paper boy from southern Israel was rescued Sunday after he was swept with his car into Nahal HaBesor.

The man managed to cross the Ze’ilim Bridge, but due to the current, was thrust some 100 meters from the flooded overpass.

He eventually managed to get out of his car and hold on to a tree on the river bank, and rescuers who were called out managed to pull the man from danger.

Due to the incident, there was a delay in newspaper deliveries in the Eshkol region.
