BRIDGEPORT -- Despite a report that two men were stranded on the rocks near Soundview Drive on Monday afternoon, it turned out to be an optical illusion, officials said.

From a distance, it appeared the men were stuck on the jetty near the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Seaside Park when the tide rolled in.

But upon further review, it became clear the men were actually in a small boat.

Local police and firefighters responded to the scene, but a rescue was not necessary.
