A search for a man reported in the water in Central Falls ended on Sunday afternoon with the man safe and back on dry land.
Warwick fire told NBC 10 that the search was called off after it was confirmed that it was only one person that was in the water by security footage from cameras on the buildings in the surrounding area.
The security footage showed just the one individual going into the water voluntarily by themselves. After initially saying he was not alone the individual recanted and admitted that not only was he the only one in the water but that he had gone in there on his own.
According to Warwick fire the individual was taken in for evaluation but initial reports from the scene said that he would be fine.
When the individual was asked by the fire personal who rescued him why he was in the water he told them "he wanted to go for a swim."
