EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Rescue crews launched boats off Dress Plaza Thursday afternoon for water rescue near the LST 325.

A crew member of the LST said he heard someone in the water near the ship and discovered the man trying to climb onto the concrete.

Responders arrived in just a few minutes, pulled the man out of the water, and took him by ambulance to the hospital.

We’re told he was awake and alert, but complained of foot pain.
