Police Rescue Man Who Tried To Save His Soccer Ball In The Hudson River

Never mess with another man's soccer ball. A Jersey City man jumped into the dirty Hudson River to retrieve a soccer ball on Saturday night and almost drowned in the process.

Police responded to the waterfront park where witnesses said they hadn't seen him in the water for a long time. Detectives were able to locate the man and threw in a water bag to help him make it back to safety. No word on the condition of the soccer ball.
