BUFFALO, New York (WABC) -- An incredible rescue was caught on camera after a man heard a young girl's cries for help from an open sewer in upstate New York.
George Bankowski was walking past the open manhole an hour after 12- year old Grace Knox had fallen in.
She shattered her ankle and was left standing in two feet of freezing water.
The grandfather knew he had to help.
George called 9-1-1 and was there as Grace was rescued but didn't get to meet the young girl until she was recovering in the hospital.
Grace's stepfather calls George his angel.
