Man Rescued From Potomac Near Washington Harbor

WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- A man was rescued from the waters of the Potomac near Washington Harbor early Tuesday morning.

Pete Piringer, spokesman for DC Fire and EMS, says rescue personnel were dispatched to the 3200 block of K Street near Washington Harbor around 2:45 a.m. after receiving a report of a man in the water.

When DC Fire and EMS crews arrived at the park area north of the harbor they found the man and secured him with a life-safety ring. The man was rescued by a fireboat a short time later.

The 23-year-old man was evaluated by EMS at Thompson's Boat House and transported to a local hospital.
