MIAMI – A man is in critical condition after he was found in the water in the marina behind Bayside Marketplace on Sunday night.

The 20-year-old was reported missing about 9 p.m. by his friends, who told authorities he was not feeling well and was going to lie down.

Miami Department of Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll said it is unclear if he fell asleep on the dock and rolled into the bay or if he was attempting to board a boat and fell into the water.

Divers pulled the man from the water, and paramedics began CPR, Carroll said.

The man was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. 

Miami police are now investigating.
