BAL HARBOUR, Fla. —

A dramatic rescue at sea was caught on camera.

Bal Harbour police said a 72-year-old tourist was walking along the sea wall when he got dizzy, lost his footing and fell into the water.

Fisherman Chris Lindholm saw the man fall and called 911.

Police found the man about a half-mile off shore and were able to pull him to safety.

"It really overwhelmed me when they said that they had, that he was still alive," Lindholm said.

Police said the man had cuts on his body from hitting rocks when he fell.

He was taken to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
