Man Brings Daydream to Life, Jumps Into Central Park Reservoir


As some of us have imagined ourselves doing but not actually done, a sweaty, overheated white male in his forties scaled a chain-link fence and dove into the Central Park Reservoir on Sunday. He swam around in it for a few glorious minutes before firefighters booted him from the water, ordering him to grab onto a rope and lassoing him back to the shore. From there, the man was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, but this seems like a bet that he just won, and that’s what matters. [NYP]
