TROY – There was an early morning scare on Friday at the Hudson River in Troy.

Police and rescue crews responded to calls about a man underwater.

It happened just before 8 a.m. near the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.

People started calling 911 about a person in the water under the dock.

When crews arrived, they found a man in between the flotation device and the dock.

Police say he was never in the water. However, a rescue boat was still launched to make sure crews had a better control of the situation.

Police are still trying to figure out why the man was there in the first place.

He was taken to Samaritan Hospital for an evaluation.
