JACKSON -- A child was pulled completely underwater in his neighborhood by a flooded creek Monday, and was rescued by a Jackson Police Officer, Kyle Henning. 

Jackson Police shared the video on its Facebook page Wednesday.

Henning was on patrol when he witnessed several adults trying to pull the 9-year-old from the water. He was playing in the water when the strong current sucked him into the culvert that runs under the road. 

Officer Henning wrapped the child in a "bear hug" and was able to pull him from the water.

Thankfully the child was uninjured and returned to his parents.
