SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 52-year-old man who was calling for help in San Diego Bay was rescued by harbor police Monday night and hospitalized for hypothermia.
The rescue happened about 9 p.m. near the 1300 block of North Harbor Drive, San Diego Harbor Police Department Lt. Kirk Nichols said.
A witness saw the man in distress and called San Diego Harbor police, Nichols said. Dive team members responded to the call, along with San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and paramedics.
The man was found clinging to a portion of a boat dock inside the water, Nichols said. He told police that he jumped into the bay because he believed someone was chasing him.
Police pulled him out of the water and paramedics took him to UCSD Medical Center to treat hypothermia.
