Rescuers search for man in harbor near Fells Point

May 17, 2011|By Andrea F. Siegel, The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore rescuers were searching Monday night for a man they think lowered himself into the harbor by the 900 block of Fell St. after a what may have been an argument with his wife.

Firefighters, a diver and other rescue workers searched for the missing man, as a city police helicopter scoured the area from above, Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright said.

They were responding to a call that came in shortly before 10 p.m. Monday. The man, who was described as 30- to 40-year-old white male, ran from his wife after a domestic dispute, and witnesses told police he lowered himself into the water from a pier, Cartwright said.
