Police say a naked man who ran from officers on Seattle's waterfront and then jumped into Elliott Bay was fleeing a hospital where he had been taken for a medical evaluation.

Now he's back in a hospital for a medical evaluation.

Police say the man fled Harborview Medical Center on Tuesday, took off his clothes and headed downhill toward the water.

Police were chasing him as he ran toward Colman Dock and jumped into the water near the ferry terminal.

Fire boats responded and pulled the man from the water.
