A young man was pulled to safety on Lake Mendota Monday night, after he failed to meet his goal of swimming across.  Authorities say he was intoxicated.

Luckily, a nearby fisherman heard cries for help around 7 p.m. in the Babcock Road area of Lake Mendota. He managed to pull the distressed swimmer into his boat.

Paramedics checked the guy out and then took him to detox.
