A CityNews viewer sent in this amateur footage of a child caught in the water after heavy rains in Mississauga.

The video, shot near Dixie Road and Dundas Street on Monday, shows a child trying to swim along a flooded street.

The child was rescued by an adult, viewer Violeta Djuric said.

“He was in the townhouse up the street from me and I guess he just got a little too close to the water,” Djuric told Breakfast Television Tuesday.

“They were both OK,” she said.
