Routine patrol turns into life-saving rescue Sunday morning.
A routine patrol turned into a life-saving rescue Sunday morning on the Chicago River.
The Coast Guard crew was quickly able to pull the man from the 41-degree water and take him to paramedics.
Video from the scene shows the man walking on his own into the ambulance.
A Coast Guard spokesman said the man is lucky -- a person can't survive for very long at all in water that temperature.
