Officials say an employee with a utility company rescued a child who fell into a canal Thursday. 

The SRP worker saw the child fall into the canal while chasing a dog near 99th and Southern avenues and jumped in after to rescue the child, according to Rural Metro Fire.

The child was in the water for less than 30 seconds and is OK, Rural Metro says.

Officials have not been able to locate the child's parents.
