(KFOR) Two men were standing on some rocks of a popular fishing spot near I-40 and Eastern, but they were not prepared for the flood gates to open; sending a tidal wave of water straight at them.
There was race to get the men out, before the river swallowed them up.
Fishermen come to the spot all the time. It's good catfishing at the bottom of the dam, but when the gates open, it's the last place you want to be.
It was supposed to be a relaxing evening of fishing for Kevin Brawdy and his uncle.
Catfishing; have some fun and go back home to eat some fish. Then the sirens sounded and the floodgates opened.
The calm Oklahoma River turned angry. The fishermen were too far from shore to beat the fast moving water.
