    We're hearing from one of the people being called a hero after helping to rescue four children from a flooded drainage ditch in Oklahoma City. It happened after a storm hit the area yesterday afternoon. People at two locations helped pull the kids from the water. One man says he scaled a fence near his home once he saw them in danger, and managed to pull one of the boys to safety.
