San Bernardino County Fire Department rescuers were called out Friday afternoon to extract a teenaged boy who reportedly jumped into the aqueduct near Main and Maple Streets.


A witness reported seeing a juvenile wearing only shorts jump into the waterway a little before 2:30 p.m.


The teen was able to extract himself from the aqueduct prior to his rescuers' arrival and he suffered no serious injuries and was not transported for medical care.
