Boston police, looking for 1 man, rescue another

BOSTON (AP) -- Police searching Boston Harbor for a 24-year-old man who's been missing since last weekend ended up pulling a different man from the frigid water.

Officers were searching for Eric Munsell behind the Long Wharf Marriott at about 11 p.m. Monday. Munsell was last seen at a bar in the nearby Financial District on Saturday night.

Police checking the water saw a man struggling to clamber up the stone wall.

Detective Thomas Leahy tells the Boston Herald he reached down and pulled the man to safety. He was wearing just a coat and boxer shorts.

The man did not speak English and it's unclear how he ended up in the water. His name was not released.

He was taken to the hotel and later to a hospital. Munsell remains missing.
