WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita police officer has rescued a 2-year-old boy from a fast-flowing Wichita creek.

Sgt. Bruce Watts says the boy was walking with his grandfather Friday when he slipped down a muddy hill and fell into Gypsum Creek.

The boy then became caught on a rock, face down in the 2{- to 3-foot water. With the help of people on the bank, Wichita police Officer Darren Sundquist was able to locate and pull out the submerged boy about 200 yards from where he fell in.

The Wichita Eagle (http://is.gd/Qf3Aol ) reports that fire department crews arrived a short time later and started doing compressions on the boy. Sundquist says the boy had ``very, very good color within two minutes.''

The boy was rushed to a Wichita hospital in critical condition.
