PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

The Pass Christian Fire Department says 45-year-old Mitchell Sevel went overboard late Sunday night then swam to shore.

Officials tell WLOX News Sevel was on the stern of the "Kar-Lyn-Dawn" on the phone, when a wave knocked him off. Sevel swam to shore, made it to the Henderson Point Condos and pulled the fire alarm.

Fire crews quickly responded, and when Sevel told his story they brought him back to the harbor.

Authorities say we was reunited with his family and friends around 1:30 Monday morning. He refused treatment, and did not go to the hospital.
