Man Rescued From Swan River After Trying To Catch A Pokemon

A man has been rescued after falling into the Swan River trying to "catch 'em all".

Police were called to the Barrack Street Jetty about 12.45am after a security guard saw a man fall from the jetty into the water and raised the alarm.

By the time they arrived, the guard had pulled the man from the water.

He told the officers he was leaning over the jetty trying to catch a Pokemon.

He did not need medical attention, other than for perhaps a bruised ego.
