MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A fisherman is credited with rescuing an intoxicated man trying to swim across Lake Mendota.

University of Wisconsin-Madison police say firefighters, paramedics and divers responded to the lake near Porter boathouse about 7 p.m. Monday on a report of a man in the water calling for help.

A fisherman heard the man’s cries for help, pulled him into his boat and brought him to shore. The State Journal (https://bit.ly/1lPCL37 ) says paramedics checked the man for injuries and police took him to a detox center.
