Drunken tourist takes a swim in Reykjavík pond

The Capital Region Police were called to the pond in central Reykjavík on Wednesday evening to attend to a man spotted swimming. When the police arrived he had made it to dry land.

According to Fréttabladid, the man turned out to be a Japanese tourist who could not explain his behavior due to drunkenness. It is unclear whether he jumped or fell into the pond.

Police attended to two other men Wednesday evening who were so drunk they had to be taken to the police station to sober up.
