The Dom Post reports:

A man has been taken to hospital with hypothermia after taking an early morning skinny dip in Harbour.

Acting police inspector Bruce Mackay said police were called to Oriental Bay, after receiving reports of a naked man swimming near Freyberg pool.

“Police were called to talk to the man, to see why he was naked and swimming in the harbour. He was taken to hospital in a hypothermic condition, but obviously we’re also concerned for his mental wellbeing.”

I’d say anyone who goes swimming in Wellington waters in April is definitionally insane 🙂
