DETROIT  — The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a man who was in the 37-degree waters of the Detroit River.

A crew on a boat pulled the man from the river Monday afternoon after a report from construction workers that he was in the water near a Coast Guard station.

The man was initially unresponsive, but the Coast Guard says he was revived before being taken to a hospital for treatment. His name wasn't released.
