A Green Bay man had to be pulled back in from the waters of Green Bay Monday afternoon after jumping overboard for another family member near Ephraim. According to a release from the Ephraim Fire Department, it responded to a call just after noon and arrived on scene to find the unnamed man rescued by family members in their pontoon boat. Door County Emergency Services treated the man on board the pontoon boat before transporting him to the Sister Bay Marina where an ambulance was waiting for him for further treatment. Fire Chief Justin MacDonald says it is another example of how unpredictable the water can be.
Gibraltar Fire and Rescue, Wisconsin DNR, Door County Sheriff’s Department, and the United States Coast Guard all responded to the incident with fire crews clear the scene by 1:20 p.m. MacDonald expects an update on the rescued man later Tuesday morning.
