Man rescued from lake after trying to 'walk on water'

A man was pulled from Lady Bird Lake in Austin Texas, early on Wednesday morning after he reportedly attempted to walk on water.

Austin-Travis County EMS and Austin Police responded to a call at 2:28am about a person in the water. Fire crews, along with EMS and APD, launched a fire department boat to look for the person.

STARFlight also responded and, shortly after they arrived on scene, was able to locate the person, a male in his 30s, and crews in the boat were able to retrieve him.

He was taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge with non-life threatening injuries. Police say the man tried to "walk on water." APD says the man will be charged with public intoxication.

He wasn't trying to walk on water. He just figured that was a better excuse than saying, "I was just following the directions from my portable GPS."*
