Coast Guard, State Police and Boston fire and police crews began searching Dorchester Bay by Malibu Beach around 4:30 a.m. for a man reported in the water, but eventually called the search off after determining the man was not, in fact, in the water. NBC Boston reports the operator of the Beades drawbridge reported seeing two people apparently jumping into the water, but only one coming out; it turned out that while one man did jump, the other thought better of it at the last second and didn't actually go into the water.

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters managed to free a woman stuck in "tarlike mud" at Malibu Beach in Dorchester this afternoon. Two firefighters trying to free the "distressed" woman from the mud themselves got stuck and had to be rescued by other firefighters.

Last month, another woman and her dog had to be rescued from mud along the water in East Boston.

The Dorchester Reporter reports DCR has Jersey-barriered a pebbly stretch of the shoreline along Dorchester Bay off Morrissey Boulevard because too many of the people using it to launch small boats and Jet Skis were failing to observe basic Covid-19 social-distancing requirements and because too many people were using it as a place to drink and weren't cleaning up after themselves.
