The moving figure swims, and having swum, moves on
Boston and State Police swarmed the South Boston beaches this afternoon - both on shore and in the water - looking for a man reported to be possibly struggling as he swam about 400 yards offshore.
The search was called off when nobody was found. Even in February, members of the L Street Bathhouse (you know, the people who run into the bay every New Year's Day) will don wet suits and go for swims. It is not known, however, if the spotted man was from L Street.
