Santa Barbara County and City firefighters responded to the Earl Warren Showgrounds off Las Positas Road in Santa Barbara at 11:27 a.m. Monday after receiving a report of subjects trapped.
When crews arrived they discovered two males, one minor and one adult, trapped in a storm drain.
City firefighters used the Jaws-of-Life to remove parts of the metal grate to reach them.
County Fire Captain Scott Safechuck stated the pair entered the drain from a downstream location and were lucky the rain had subsided causing low water levels in the drain.
For safety reasons, residents are reminded not to enter storm drains.
