Two men were fished out of the Fort Point Channel near the Broadway Bridge in Southie on Wednesday morning.

Police, firefighters and EMS rescued two men from the channel at about 11 a.m..

Authorities found the two men in the water and provided ladders for them to climb up. EMS checked the pair out and said that they appeared to be intoxicated, but were unharmed.

A police officer was also taken to the hospital to be looked at for non-life threatening injuries after he climbed in and out of the channel.

The bridge links the South End to South Boston and connects South Boston to the on-ramps for the Mass Pike and 93 Northbound and the South Station ramps.

The Boston Police said that they have not yet determined why the two were in the water.

The channel temperature, according to NOAA, is around 45 degrees.
