Police responded to reports of two people in the water near the Rainier Beach spot around 4 a.m.  Firefighters rescued one man from the water, but a woman could not immediately be located.

The man had a cut on his neck, chest and eyes, the Seattle Times reported. He was also heavily intoxicated.

Rescuers said a woman was not located by 5:02 a.m., and it was unknown if there ever was a woman in the water. The man allegedly told police he was running from the woman, and didn’t know her name. He eventually admitted to lying about entering the water with a woman.

Police are investigating the incident.
