Check out this amazing video out of Northern Oregon where a man was pulled from the freezing Willamette River on Sunday.

Fortunately, a good samaritan was there to save the man's life.  This good samaritan, was riding his bike when he saw the commotion, then stopped, jumped in and pulled the man out of the freezing water.

A fire department spokesman says hypothermia could have set in if the rescuer hadn't responded quickly.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
