PORTLAND, Ore. -- A couple camping in Southeast Portland had to be rescued by Portland Fire crews after rising water trapped them on an island in Johnson Creek.

A man who identified himself as Tony told KGW he was taking a shower while his wife Sheri slept.

They didn't notice the rising water around them until it was too late.

Tony said the toughest part was admitting they were in trouble, and making the decision to call for help.
