Original story below…
Emergency crews rescued a naked man from the water on Tuesday afternoon at a local park.
At just before 4 p.m., police and fire crews responded to Cowenton Ridge Park for a report of person wading in a small, abandoned rock quarry.
Initial reports from the 911 caller indicated that a naked male was screaming in the water.
Police arrived first at the park, located at 8941 Cowenton Avenue (21128), and reported the that the individual would not exit the water.
Clothing that had been found on a rock ledge approximately 30 feet high led responders to believe the that person had jumped into the water.
Arriving fire units requested an inland water rescue since the person wasn’t following commands, couldn’t be reached, and appeared to be ill or possibly under the influence.
Additional resources were dispatched, including boats, water rescuers, and a dive team.
The naked male was eventually able to exit the water.
There has been no update on his condition.
