Raw video: Nude swimmer captured in Hermann Park
At one point, the man appeared to be in the middle of the lake not far from the fountains. He then swam to a shallow area.
A small crowd gathered to watch.
"I saw a lot of swimming and splashing and cursing and then I saw the police show up, so I was wondering, 'Well, what's wrong?'" said Madison Markum. "No person in their right mind would probably go swimming in Hermann Park's lake."
"It's pretty hot outside, you can't blame somebody!" said Anthony Bravo. "But obviously inappropriate behavior, so somebody has to has to question what's going through his mind."
A boat team moved in and snatched the swimmer, safely taking him to shore around 11:40 a.m.
Houston Firefighters said the man may be suffering from mental issues.
