BUFFALO, N.Y. ( WKBW ) Helicopters, police, dive teams, and other emergency workers responded to a bizarre situation Friday afternoon at Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park.

Someone apparently spotted a naked man in the park Friday afternoon shortly after 2p.m. and called police.

Officials tell Eyewitness News that the man claims he was training for a triathlon, and wanted to test the cold water.

People nearby called in a complaint after the man took off all his clothes and jumped into the lake.

Police caught up with the man, but no arrest was made. His identity has not been released. Nobody was hurt in the incident.
