The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says a male homeowner on North Cabin Circle, heard a man yelling for help from the lake. The homeowner got in his boat and located the 34-year-old Duluth man swimming, but in need of help.

Authorities say he gave the man a life jacket and was brought back to shore with the help from rescue personnel. The 34-year-old was medically cleared and placed at detox.

The sheriff's office doesn't know if the man had fallen out of a watercraft. No boat was located by rescue personnel at the time. Officials say it appears he was alone. The incident is under investigation.
