US harbor patrol officers were hailed heroes after they saved a man from drowning in a lake.
The officers were responding to multiple calls of a man in a behavioural crisis swimming off the shore of Fritz Hedges Waterway Park in Seattle, in the US State of Washington on 12th August.
Harbour patrol officers arrived within minutes and located the man at the waterline.
The man re-entered the water and began to drown, but officers manoeuvred the boat towards him and threw him a flotation device.
The man was unable to grab the device and quickly sank beneath the surface.
An officer dove into the water found the victim at the bottom of the water, and pulled him to the shore.
Though not breathing, officers began CPR, and thanks to their efforts, the man regained consciousness.
Seattle Fire Department personnel arrived and transported the victim to the hospital in stable condition.
