Firefighters Save Man Clinging to Sailboat

Firefighters have saved a man from an Annapolis creek.

An Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman says crews responded to Weems Creek around 8:40 p.m. Saturday after getting a call about a man in the water.

When firefighters arrived, they found the man in the water, clinging to a sailboat. It took about 20 minutes for crews to rescue him.

The man is in serious condition with hypothermia-related injuries and is expected to survive. His name has not been released.
