The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a man from the Detroit River late Monday afternoon.

Construction workers notified two coast guardsmen of a person in the water at about 4:10 p.m. They notified the search-and-rescue coordinator and kept watch on the man in the water.

The coordinator directed the launch of a rescue crew from the Belle Isle coast guard station.

A rescue boat crew, aboard a 45-foot response boat, arrived at 4:28 p.m. and pulled the man from the water. The crew immediately started CPR as they transferred the man to awaiting emergency services personnel at the boat docks.

The man was unresponsive when transferred to EMS, but revived after continued CPR during transport to St. John Hospital in Detroit.

“A quick response and immediate action by the crew helped save this man’s life,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Thomas Chegin, coxswain of the Coast Guard rescue boat. “This is what we train for every day and because of that training we were ready.”

The water temperature was 2 C Monday night.

The name and hometown of the man rescued are not being released.
