A man rescued from the waters of Boston Harbor by a State Police marine unit had jumped from the Provincetown Ferry. According to ferry owner Michael Glasfeld, the man made the leap after a prolonged argument with his sister.

The Boston Globe reports:

[Glasfeld] said the man then reached into a pocket to remove his cellphone and another item and placed both on the deck, apparently signaling his intent to enter the water. The man’s sister and then a crew member tried to stop him but were unable, Glasfeld said, and the man climbed over the ferry’s handrail and leaped into the water.
