Lifeboat volunteers carried out a dramatic rescue of a man from the River Tay.
Emergency services were called to Riverside Drive just after 8pm on Wednesday following concerns for a 35-year-old in the water close to Discovery Point.
Two lifeboats from Broughty Ferry, a coastguard team and police officers were tasked to assist the man who subsequently received treatment from Scottish Ambulance Service personnel.
It is understood the man, draped in a blanket, was seen being taken from one of the lifeboats at Broughty Ferry before being placed in an ambulance.
It’s unclear how the man came to be in the water.
A spokesman for the Broughty Ferry RNLI confirmed that crews had rescued the individual.
He said: “The volunteer crews were alerted just after 8pm and the inshore lifeboat was launched at 8.07pm. The Elizabeth of Glamis, the larger all-weather vessel, followed four minutes later.
“On arrival at the scene the inshore lifeboat crew assisted a male from the water into the boat.
“He was then transferred to the all-weather lifeboat before being transported safely to Broughty Ferry lifeboat station, where he was then passed into the care of a waiting ambulance crew.
“Both lifeboats were then made ready for any further calls.”
A spokesman for Police Scotland added: “We received a call about concerns for a man in the River Tay after 8pm.
‘‘He was traced by the coastguard and this was deemed to be a medical matter.
“Police Scotland left the scene at 9.15pm and no further action was required.”
A spokesman from the coastguard added: “We responded to reports of a person who had entered the water. We were notified just after 8pm.
“Both lifeboats from Broughty Ferry were launched and coastguard teams also attended.
‘‘The man was recovered from the water quickly and left with the police and ambulance service.”
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service at 8.03pm.
“We sent one ambulance to Broughty Ferry Lifeboat Station and conveyed a man to Ninewells Hospital.”
