Rescue officials saved a man whose boat was taking on water Sunday near the Bay St. Louis Municipal Harbor, a spokeswoman said.

Melissa Scallan with the Department of Marine Resources said officers were able to get the man from the boat as it was taking on water.

He was brought to the harbor.

Scallan said the man told officials he was bringing his boat back to the harbor after Hurricane Nate made landfall overnight Saturday.

Bay St. Louis police, fire officials and emergency medical personnel also responded.
