Two men were treated for hypothermia Saturday after they fell out of their kayak into the frigid waters of Jamaica Bay and were rescued by police.

The New York City Police Department has released video of the Air Sea Rescue team's rescue of a 32-year-old man, which happened around 3 p.m. Saturday.

The man was taken to Kings County Hospital.

Meanwhile, an Emergency Services detective swam 200 yards further to rescue the second kayaker.
