BFD, BPD and State Police responded to call for a water rescue on Monday night around 9pm off of UMass Boston.
Evidently, a man fell off of a jet ski and was clinging to a nearby sailboat in the darkness. He did not have a lifejacket on and did not know how to swim. First responders were able to help him onto a BPD boat. The jet ski sunk to the bottom of the ocean.

Glad that the first responders were able to rescue the man and save his life. Not having a life jacket on, or not knowing how to swim can be dangerous, especially in this kind of situation. Thank heavens that the guy is okay. That was an awfully close call!
