Man Trapped in Missouri River for 3 Days Found Alive

KANSAS CITY, Ks. -- In Kansas City, Kansas, a man pulled from the Missouri River says he was trapped in the water for three days.

A couple out fishing found him caught up in the branches of a tree.

At first, they thought he was dead.

Once they realized he was still alive, they tried to pull him into their boat but couldn't.

That's when they gave him a life jacket and called 911.

Boat crews were dispatched.

They had some trouble pulling him to safety because he was so lethargic.

The man is in his 40s.

He said he didn't know how he came to be in the water but he is expected to recover.
