Officers rescue man in Green Lake

A man intent on harming himself was rescued by officers early this morning in Green Lake.

At about 3:30 this morning, a witness called 911 to report there was a naked man in the water clinging to a dock in Green Lake.  Officers were in the area and arrived quickly.  One officer made contact with the man, who informed him that he had been in the water for about half an hour and could not swim.  Additional officers arrived and the man was safely pulled up on to the dock.  He told officers that he had been attempting to harm himself.  The man was transported to the hospital by Seattle Fire Medics.
