BRIMFIELD, Oh. — A fun, late-night swim in the Mogadore Reservoir ended with the response of the Portage County Water Rescue Team.

According to Brimfield police, a man was with his friends late Thursday evening when he decided to take a swim. Police say he ended up on one of the small islands, stranded, almost naked and “too tired and now borderline hypothermic” to swim back.

Brimfield police activated the Portage County Water Rescue Team.

Once the victim was rescued, police determined he had a warrant out of the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department and was transported to Cuyahoga Falls.
