A quick-thinking Detroit man is being called a hero after saving a woman running through the flooded streets earlier this week.

Jeremy Crites was standing on his porch, surveying the floods, when he saw a woman fall into the water, he quickly realized she was drowning.

He rushed into the water, pulled her out and performed CPR until an ambulance arrived.

The women is okay and Crites later learned the emotional words she spoke of him.

"The gentlemen down the street said that she posted on Facebook, that she owes her life to a guy, who lives on Merrick and Colgate, and she didn't know who it was," says Crites as he wipes tears from his eyes.

When asked what he would say to her by a local reporter, Crites replied with "I'm glad I could've been there."

The 21-year-old woman's post has thousand of hits of many people thanking Crites for his courageous efforts.
